Author of Madam, Have You Ever Really Been Happy? An Intimate Journey through Africa and Asia

BACK IN NEPAL, AFTER FOUR LONG YEARS

Cary and I arrived in Kathmandu and returned to the Boudhanath Stupa on November 11th after four long years punctuated by COVID. Here are a few photos to let you know where we have been. We’ll have lots of details to share with you, soon!

Here I am in the foothills of the Himalayas enjoying tranquil mountain views at the Prakriti Organic Farm Resort. This is the extent of our high-altitude trekking for the moment.

Before and after our week in the mountains, we had whirlwind visits with friends in Boudha and Dhulikhel.

On November 25th, we flew to Lumbini, birthplace of the Buddha. We are taking a week to see the sacred sites here, including stunning temples built by the myriad Buddhist traditions from around the world.

Here is the site of the Buddha’s birth in the Maya Devi Temple.Much more to come….

  3. When I named my baby daughter, “Maya”, it was “the divine creative force found in all things.” Maya, Buddha’s mother, and Mary, Jesus’s mother -but mostly, I Just liked the sound of it. Now looking at the Maya Devi Temple, I am, once again, reminded of its universal sound.
    Such beauty in your photos! Blue sky forever. (snowing and cold on Whidbey right now!)
