What we do in Kathmandu






Since out last posting we’ve had many escapades. We’re really excited about our journey to see the boy meditating, ‘buddha’. But first we’ll recap the events that lead up to our pilgrimage.
We’ll start with the language lessons that are going well. My teacher Sushila’ji’ is a great language teacher. She’s expressive and fun and patient with my bistaarai brain. I really need to be less timid when speaking to people so that I can actually use what I have learned. Sam’s been good at helping me out with my self imposed homework, even when he’s ensconced in learning his new music software, ekdaam raamro!

After lessons there’s a thulo amount of things to check out and in my case they often involve shopping. We went to Thamel which is the tourist hot spot to look at hand-made jewelry, pashmina, beads, knock off North Face gear, and much more. Plus we went to a Christmas bizzar and felt that holiday feeling at the sunny Hyatt Regency.

Of course things wouldn’t be complete unless we hung out with friends and drank hot millet beer out of a bamboo straw! Tomba, ekdaam mitho!

Last Saturday the crown prince came into town. We didn’t see him but we saw his jag and Sam’s friend the travel agent J

Most importantly we’ve seen lot’s of great people, both kind friends and miscellaneous kindred spirits.
