A brief email to let you all know that my days and nights in tropical Indonesia have come to an end for the moment...I’ve packed up, sorted out the work stuff and leave Ubud on Tuesday night to fly, via Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok, to Kathmandu....finally. It took me a year, but after all this time I will eventually land in Nepal.
Things are hectic and busy and overwhelming at the moment, with all the work and projects I’m wrapping up to hand over, as well as with the realization that I spent the last year in a village in central Bali. It feels like an eternity ago that I arrived on the boat from Java, and it’s odd (and slightly incomprehensible) to think that it was virtually exactly a year ago (September 1, 2005).
So now I’ll be back in travel mode (i.e. Writing mode), and although I haven’t figured out if I’m resurrecting that defunct webblog (did any really EVER read that thing, anyways?), somehow I’ll be forwarding you updates as to which part of the Himalayas I’m lost in.....
Lots of love and blessings from Bali,
Om, om, and all that jazz,
