Guest Post: Mrs. Strangetastes in Kathmandu

My wife just got back from a ten day visit to Nepal. This was done under the wing of a community development agency and school, the Mitrata Home for Children, that we have supported since we went there together ten years ago. The organization has ties to St. Louis. She got some wonderful images. This is a young Buddhist monk at Boudhanath Stupa, a large community of Tibetan religious refugees in Kathmandu. A set of my wife's pictures is on Flickr here.

I think that Asia has got to be the coolest area of the world for an American to travel to. It is so different than here!

I regularly travel to India, and love going.

The first time I traveled around the world (in less than 80 days!) I came back a changed person. Everyone should get out of their country (and comfort zone) once in a while.
