Sunil, Shankar and Anna
Today Anna and I spent our last day in Pokhara seeing "Dirty Picture" with a couple of the Doctors I'd met at Manipal hospital, Sunil and Shankar (or Shanky Babu as I called him)
At this time we struggled to get a cab into Mahendrapool where the movie theatre was as their were riots. One guy from a political party was killed in a jail. Therefore the whole of Nepal was on strike...
Anyway, we were a bit anxious when we were walking past people throwing rocks at motorbikes and shouting but we were informed by Shankar that this happens "all the time in Nepal".
The movie was a great experience in the filthy cinema with people smoking, cheering for the good guy and booing the baddie. Although the whole movie was in Hindi, we could get the gist of it!
A great song has become really popular from it, "Oh la la, Oh la la Hindi Song" from Dirty Movie.
Afterwards we had Pani Puri and chai with them and sadly said goodbye.
