Viewing Post for: In the Footsteps of Buddha 2011

Date: September 13
Location: Khatmandu, Nepal

As you can tell from the picture we are in a place called Bouddanath. Our hotel is right near a giant stupa. This picture is from the roof of the hotel. Last night when we arrived hundreds of people walking in circles around the stupa. The ride here was held up by a road blockage where trucks were stopped for miles. They let tourists through, so after we walked past the trucks to wait while eating lunch, they let us through. You will have to ask us more when you see us.

Today is visiting famous places here such as the monkey temple and the cremation temple. Tonight we go have dinner with our friend Kathy who lives in town. Thanks for your posts.

Erica says buy, buy, buy. Did she give you her credit card? It's pledge time on PBS TV. Guess what the latest miracle food is, that will solve all your problems. Mushrooms! Quite a view from your hotel! Rick

Does Kathmandu look the same? I can remember Bouddanath well! Also, I can feel your presence here much more than usual. I think Tesla called it a torsion field. Be well. Frank

Hi Dad - looks like you're enjoying the trip and hopefully you haven't had to use the Egyptian meds! Spoke with Mom yesterday & she said your VISA card was billed $800 in India - hopefully that was you doing the buying! If not, send a message home! Miss you & thinking of you!

Hi Dayle, You're in the land of the triangular flag and time off the rest of the world by 15 minutes. I can picture your footsteps here and smell the smells. I wish I were there too. Don't let the monkeys take your camera. They seem to like cameras and purses. Buy buy buy .....XO, Erica

Trip sounds astonishingly novel and interesting, if challenging at times. Things are becoming autumnal just slightly here, but still quite beautiful. I miss you and hope you are well. Love, Neil

Hi Papasan, you're looking well in the photo - Good to see you! Bouddanath is a special place and I can imagine just where you are. Kopan is right up the hill from there so I went there a number of times. We're off to the beach today, perhaps the last beach day of summer. Namaste from Quim, Kenia and me
