    Suggest places to see and things to experience in Nepal in 4 days

    I was in Katmandu 1 year ago and was repeatedly stopped by communist youth gangs who collected small fees from both myself and my guide when trekking thru small villages around Kat. Unless you are a Buddist Monk or love seeing people suffer in unbelievable poverty I would avoid Kat altogether. John about 8 years ago

    Going to Ecuador in november for sightseeing & to check it out as possible country to retire to. Any Recommendations/suggestions/advice?

    May want to check out Cuenca and Loja. Quito is to high (9000 ft plus) and is very big and problems with pollution and traffic. Beautiful country and friendly people. Government is following socialist model with socialist president who admires Castro, Hugo, and other handful of socialist leaders currently popular. This could be future problem for retirees. about 8 years ago

    Are there any excellent places to eat in Quito?

    Food in the Mariscal (gringoland) is unremarkable generally U.S. Prices. Outside the tourist area the food is very inexpensive and varies in quality as in most places. Avoid the "Tex-Mex Rest. On Victoria Calle as food is fake Tex Mex and service is very poor with higher than average prices even for tourist area. John about 8 years ago
