Day nine

... we're relieved when they knew we would be back tomorrow.

Goodbyes are definitely going to be really hard for all of us. The work is slowly dying down as we start to wrap up the trip so our days are filled with less work and more free time. I have to admit it's very nice since I'm exhausted from the past week of work and heat. Sadly, we only have two full days left which is crazy to think about! But the longer I'm here the more homesick I get. Hope everyone has a good ...

A wedding ceremony

... ones honoured!! The afternoon passed in a haze of celebration, music, chanting by the Brahman, food, wine and drinks. We had much of the ceremonial sections explained by family members as there is no similarity with Western weddings that I could see. This was a very orthodox wedding though with many ceremonial parts, lighting of incense and anointing of heads and hands. There were nibbles bought around on platters...I thought this was lunch, so stocked up well! We were ...

Life and death on the sacred Bagmati

... that when Tiggy died we sent her off into the wild beyond, complete with marigolds.)

It was obviously a young child. The little feet were exposed from under the wrapping of white cloth so that water from the sacred river could be splashed upon the feet. Clothing is discretely removed from under the shroud (in order to leave this world the same as we arrive). Friends and family were crowded about but several key members were carrying out ...

Not the best start...

... delays were due to an air traffic issue and not weather, so they could not. They told me which train to take to get to Dulles, though. I was supposed to get on the orange Metro, but the orange Metro did not go to where I was, so I had to figure out where I was going. Also, as it turns out, the published Metro rates are not really the correct Metro rates. There is a $1 surcharge on all routes, so when I finally got to West Falls Church, I could not get out because I didn't have ...

How to get close to the wildlife

... I’d known it was bacterial diarrhoea about 9 days ago, I could have zapped the little bu**ers straightaway! But I imagine I’ve lost some weight – every cloud!!!

This afternoon we went on an elephant safari into the jungle, which was quite an experience. There were about 10 elephants each carrying 4 people and a mahout. Getting on was quite a feat – we had to climb up some wooden steps onto a platform and the elephants were backed up to ...

    This hotel was first of all very cold and very loud. I had to bundle up and sleep with multiple blankets because it was cold and they didn't have heaters. It was also incredibly loud with people knocking on each others doors at six in the morning. My door didn't lock very well so I didn't feel safe all the time, but the staff was very helpful and courteous. Breakfast was also a large portion in the morning.
