Kathie checks in from Kathmandu

Jump to last reply

Namaste! We arrived yesterday afternoon. We had a good flight, and got a great view of the Himalayas from the plane. Cheryl took some photos from the plane, but of course they are never as breath-taking as the experience of actually seeing them.

The Hyatt is lovely. Set within gardens, the air here is cleaner than anything I remember breathing on my last trip. Of course, once you get out to the steets, it's the same diesel-scented, gritty air I remember so well.

We walked to Boudnath. It's supposed to be about 10 minutes walk from the Hyatt. We were caught up in the color, and Cheryl was caught up in taking photos, and after a half an hour, I said I know we've passed it. Sure enough, we turned around and walked back 20 minutes and there it was. We were only able to miss it the first time because we'd crossed the street to get out of the sun.

We circumambulated the stupa several times. The feeling of being caught up in the flow is so timeless.

I will check in from time to time but will (of course) write a detailed report when we return. The internet connection here is slooooow.
