So I didn't get approached much in Kathmandu while there...I had to ask someone with a pot leaf tattoo to help me out. Ended up getting 4-5g of hash for under $5 US. I asked for pollen and got dark hash which didn't get me very high in a joint, but was fine in a pipe (for an hour or so).
was offered pollen in Pokhara, but the guy wanted $5 a GRAM and we couldn't work out a deal, so I walked away.
On my last day in KTM, I got approached by two dealers with pollen, but since I was leaving, I didn't take them up on it.
A lot of the street dealers appeared to be crosseyed and weird...it made me not want to smoke hash, lol. I did finish off most of the piece I got, before tossing the rest. It was decent charas, as good as the best I've had in Amsterdam, but it didn't keep me high for too long. I'd rather smoke my own buds at home!
I asked some foreign tourists (ok, they were girls) if they'd been approached at all, and they hadn't been. I'll have to get back over at a better time of year to get decent ganja (out of season) and pollen. Saw dozens of plants on the road from KTM to Pokhara, and even checked out a huge female that was about 14-15' high and had just started flowering. It seems a lot of plants in Nepal just kinda 'end up' places 'naturally' (but are really cultivated and people are waiting for harvest).
