That titillating feeling of arriving somewhere new surfaced as the plane started to descend. Sitting next to two Nepalese students studying in Japan, I felt their excitement at returning home mirrored my own enthusiasm for a new destination.
It had been nearly five years since my last independent backpacking excursion, and in the run-up to …
We've had a great productive day. We got a taxi into the Hospital, Michelle had strangely gone off buses for some reason, and after collecting some notes from our "office" we took ourselves off to the university library where we could both sit and use a computer. I got started on creating a couple of flow charts; one for criteria for admissions to the birthing unit and another for care in labour on the birthing unit. I must say, they both look great and I am really pleased with ...
... time is astounding. Speaking to Paru, Birth Unit Supervisor and Sangita, Labour Ward supervisor today, they are determined that this generation of students will train as midwives, be officially licensed and have the recognition and freedom to practice in their own right in a way that's not been possible for them. I'm going to love working with them. The Birthing Unit only has postnatal admissions so far, but Paru and Sangita tell me that's about to change. It is planned that ...
... use that as my timer and, when 45 minutes was up, I decided to go.
Of course, that was when they announced they were playing their last song. I mean, I could stay for one more, right?
As it happened, it was one that I was familiar with and was one of my favorites. Sadly, the SD card on my video camera was full about 30 seconds into the song, so I did not get it on video. I got the audio, though, and I am so glad I stayed. After the show, ...
... Some believe that it will determine whether we go to heaven or hell. Some believe it determines whether we move up to a higher existence in our next life.

He believed that god, no matter what god or what religion, was not some deity or power that is out there in the universe, separate from all of us. He believed that god was inside each and every one of us.

TravelPod Member ReviewsThorong Peak Guest House Kathmandu
Great location, super quiet for being in the middle of the Thamel zoo. Clean and comfortable room and 24-hour hot water, from what I could tell. Even provided me a space heater in my room, which I gather is pretty rare in those parts. Had no problems with management or anyone else trying to hustle me. It is a budget venue, so I am not sure why others gave a low review; perhaps just adjust your expectations before arriving; it is Kathmandu, it is simple, it is dirty. Be grateful for a clean, quiet room within walking distance of everything.
