One month from tonight, I will be aboard a Qatar Airways red-eye flight from Doha to Kathmandu. I'll land at 0830. I expect the Kathmandu valley will be shrouded in it's typical smog but wonder if I'll see the Himalayas as I fly in. The Himalaya Guest House, located on Jhocchen, will be my headquarters. Jhocchen was formerly called Freak Street during the '60s when the free spirits used to visit. What a trip!
...victory, respect, and a salute to the divine. I'm on a one woman mission to help the whole world fall in love with Nepal and discover the divine embedded in the turmoil. To my home away from home: Jai Nepal!!!
I'm completing my Master's degree at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service. I've just completed my International Public Service Project in Kathmandu, Nepal working with READ - Rural Education and Development - an INGO that opens libraries that serve as community development centers. What's next? More public service in Nepal and the U.S.
