"An Icecream parlour in Kathmandu"
|Bill Bray was operating during the 1970’s Asian Overland Tours from London to Kathmandu and reverse. When these dried up due to wars and conflicts in numerous countries Bill decided to stop in Kathmandu. So from December ‘79 until late ‘81 Bill and his girlfriend Kate lived and worked in Nepal and travelled around Nepal, India, Sikkim and Bhutan looking for work opportunities, finally settling back in Kathmandu and opening a Restaurant and Icecream Parlour. This is his story.|
