Kathy and I had lunch at the only restaurant I visited in Nepal. She said the food was prepared carefully for westerners, and she was right. I didn't get sick.

We sat looking out a second-story window towards the great Boudhanath stupa. The stupa was surrounded by shops selling Buddhist paraphernalia to a large population of Buddhist tourists.

Most of the tourists were young men from monastaries of the hills of Nepal. They were taking a field trip visiting holy sites.
