Travelling With A Hound

Travelling with ones hound is never easy, even when you have your own vehicle. Constant thoughts of: will he be okay, will he runaway, will some other animal attack him or someone hit him. Then of course there is the litany of cultural hurdles to be aware of: not to go inside the house, not to drink from the water pot, beware of plates on the ground. And if he is a black dog, like our Kailash, then the fear that he can bring to people is quite amazing.

Monkey In My Tank

Through the last many years, I have had the pleasure to be a part of the Swyambunath community, living amongst its various Tibeto/Buddhist groups. It is the most important Buddhist site, outside of Tibet and the largest forested area in Kathmandu, protected under a UNESCO banner. But strangely enough my most interaction has been with the areas other, more mischievous residents: simians, or monkeys, to us…
