Favorite Song…


This is a picture taken at the Kumari Ghar, which means house, in Nepali.

Its a beautiful palace sandwiched in the center of Kathmandu City in Nepal. Kumari means virgin and every year a virgin girl (pre-pubescent) is choose from the Skhaya caste (Nepal has a dozen or more castes). Her family, in return, is paid a handsome sum…enough, I’ve been told the large sum (comparatively) feeds her entire family for life.

Gift Shopping: Bhaktapur


Bhaktapur is an awesome city and one of the best places to gift shop…I buy all my trinkets for friends here. It’s a historical Newar town not far from Kathmandu Valley in Nepal. I’m attracted to the culture and love to check out the palaces, artwork and the gorgeous temples left behind from centuries ago. Be sure to stop by during your visit to Kathamandu…so worth it!
