This is my first visit here. You have a lovely blog! It sounds like you lead a really interesting life. It must be quite an adventure, being so far from home.

Stopping by from SITS to wish you a Happy Saturday. Wow! You really live in Kathmandu. I was there in 1992 when I visited India. Did the mountain flight to Mount Everest and everything. Getting that travel fever thinking about the memories. I'll be back to read your blog again!
