Kathmandu Tourist Bungallow 200 NRs What??? No Nikon Service Center in whole Nepal??? And I have to go to India just to reach an authorized Nikon service.
My day suddenly turns darker. I only spent the whole day in the internet cafe searchng all possibilities of authorized camera repair service in kathmandu. But of no use. And if I go to India now, I will spend so much money to come back to Nepal after. And I havent seen anything of Nepal.
This day is a instropection day for me. Just because of not having any cameras working at this moment, I have spoilt my days. I am losing the spirit of travelling…, and I am not what I was some years ago. Indeed camera has made me closer to the environment, it helps me to make new friends, and of course it was part of the whole memory. But now I am too bounded by it, I felt that I am nothing without cameras, and I feel really really weak. I am disappointed by my condition now, I am really not a traveller, just merely a photographer (or not?)…
I believe I can recover soon. And the labyrinth-like Thamel alleys will be still in my memory, even it is not on my photos.
