The Spirit of Nepal
Nepal is a land of the sacred. God is present everywhere. Daily life is infused with spirituality. People, animals, cars, motorbikes, trees, mountains, and stones are worshipped. Nepali people are among the friendliest people I have met anywhere. When I collided with a bicyclist on the streets of Kathmandu, the rider looked up at me with a smile, shrugging his shoulders, and said, "Ke garne?" "What to do?" It happened. No blame. Life moves forward.
