Magic Wands, Mystery Trees, Anti-Gravity Muscles, Super-Tasters*

*My curious title refers to some topics overheard during the superhero trekking adventures that follow…  =)

Last month, my friends Erin, Yan and Anna came for a visit to Tansen, Palpa, making the long trip all the way from Washington, DC and Delhi, India. It was a blast to see them and spend time together experiencing the beauty of Nepal’s Himalayas during our (brief but action-packed) Poon Hill/ Ghorepani trek!

It was so special to see the familiar face of my friend Erin from back home, and to have a chance to share this strange, wonderful world with her two great friends.  =)


These girls were indeed tireless in their pursuit of fun and festivity! In addition to four solid days of trekking and an evening in Pokhara, we also made a visit several hours south to Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha, then doubled back to spend a final, fun night in Tansen. On their own, they also had a chance to explore the sights and sounds of Kathmandu & Patan, getting a glimpse of the Hindu-Buddhist-Newari confluence of cultures there. All in just ten days. (Take that, Jet-Lag!)

Here are a few other pics from our adventures:

    • Hey Stacey! Great to hear from you =) I know, it’s fun to think of Nepali’s back home, now that I’ve experienced life in their country. Totally looking forward to being part of that community once I’m back in the States! Hope you and the fam are doing well!!
