Feel like I'm on a Thai beach. Himalaya in background and Sun going down fast over the lake.
Today was Sunaday, a day off and 'Holi', day a religious but mostly fun day marking Spring's beginning. Consisted of everybody buying bags of coloured dye and throwing or smearing at anyone they passed. Naturally the Nepalese youths and oddly all ages of Westerners were most enthusiastic. It's a colorful place today.
My hippy dippy cafe by the lake has been overrun by the cool, young, hippy festival crowd. Dreds are a must. Sitting bewitched by an American girl tranced out to the music with a hoop. She is the real deal. She has transcended the hoolahoop and gone way beyond. Quite a dance sight. Us oldies are easy to please.
Meanwhile I'm reading about Schopenhauer. I think he would have approved.
More about Lumbini to follow. Just caught in the youthful moment of the present!
