Well, it feels like I boarded my first of four flights just fifty hours ago and here I am! After living in tube-world for nearly 48 hours, it was nice to finally arrive in dusty, somewhat chaotic Kathmandu. Not so much has changed since I visited here last…a few roads are wider, but not too much on the progress front to report. I’ve been really busy with research tasks, errands and team activities, but things are running quite smoothly. I’m not jetlagged, staying healthy, and I have my fingers crossed to fly to Lukla in the morning.

I woke up to this on my second day of flights...foothills of the Hindu Kush, Afghanistan.

One thought on “Kathmandu

  1. Lyle Mondell

    The term Hinduism also occurs sporadically in Sanskrit texts such as the later Rajataranginis of Kashmir (Hinduka, c. 1450), some 16th-18th century Bengali Gaudiya Vaishnava texts, including Chaitanya Charitamrita and Chaitanya Bhagavata, usually to contrast Hindus with Yavanas or Mlecchas.”..:*
