Happy New Year From the Dew...

Well I'm back at Ganeshy Mall toiling in Kathmandu between treks. Today was a travelers delight hopping from one official embassy to another receiving rude treatment at the Visa transfer office a regular Newari nightmare. But back at the oasis I feel okay waiting for Dal Bat.

Yesterday I breezed into Bodnath the Great Stupa erected to honor Buddha and the center of Tibetan Buddhism outside Lhasa. On this fine day the valley sparkled after a brief spell of rain. A great puja was held and I felt transported home and I thought of my students and how I love them well over tea and pizza.
