Not that I have the funds to do so anyway, but I don't believe I am brave enough at this point in my life to travel overseas to anywhere but the most benign locations (England, Italy). Part of it is the fear of anti-American sentiment but mostly it is because of what you mentioned: being away from the conveniences of medicine, etc. that one is used to. For now I'll choose to do my travel vicariously through others.

Thank so much for this link. Oh and love this blog its beautiful and Hello to Terri! :)

Wow, thanks for the link! I'm currently recovering from the latest round of "brutality." (this time a respiratory infection) I try to have good adventures in between brutalities...(smile)

Say hello to Chandra Cerchione-Peltier, my dear college friend.

Sirensongs welcome! I am really delighted you find you here. I have so enjoyed your blog over the last year since Chandra pointed it out to me on the old Endicott Bulletin Board. I love the photographs and your sense humor (which I reckon is essential for survival in those "brutalities.") My mother a Tibetan Scholar is also well traveled in India and Nepal...and so many of your posts remind me of her letters home when she first went as a graduate student in the 60's. She has an article on Endicott you might find amusing: http://www.endicott-studio.com/rdrm/rrLhamo.html

Thanks for the link - This is great! I got to see some of the Lhamo Festival in McLeod Ganj this past March. I am currently engrossed in chasing down the Newari ritual masked dances. Very little is written about them in English, and those who know the most are the elder generation who don't even like to speak Nepali (preferring the Tibeto-Burman Newari language), much less English...photos to come, when I catch my breath!

My mother has a good friend and academic colleague, Linda Iltis, who spent a good amount of time in Nepal and has written extensively about Newari dance, ritual, and song. She did an amazing amount of work with shaman/healers in the 70s and 80s. I am hoping to publish a few of her articles early next year in the Journal. (Linda is currently at the University of Washington, in Seattle and has added work in Ghana to her many academic accomplishments.)
