Sunday was a lovely day outdoors, my first in some weeks, and a welcome change after nearly 10 days nursing a cold (which is mostly gone now, at last). My classmate Tsering put together a small party including me and two monastic classmates for a trip out to Sundarijal. There we visited the monastery where Tsering stayed when she first came to Nepal from India. We paid our respects to the 90-year old Rinpoche and were then joined by his care-taker, who acted as our guide on a walk through the low hills of Shivapuri National Park.
