Prayer flags flutter from the huge stupa at Boudhanath, the most important Buddhist site in Kathmandu and heart of the city’s Tibetan community.
Michael Palin - HimalayaPratima invites us to a very smart party this evening. Lots of important foreign diplomats being introduced. I'm tired and just want to go to bed, but I do treasure one bit of polite conversation.

I'm introduced to an immaculately dressed man who takes a slightly pained glance at my appearance. I don't catch his name and grabbing a passing glass of wine, I hear myself asking, 'I'm sorry, ambassador of where?'

'France.'

It's time to move on.
