Julie, I also will be staying in Kathmandu overnight on the 27th and I fly out of KTM at 1:00 on the 28th. Perhaps we’re on the same flight to SFO? In any case, you’ve got a buddy!
What is everyone packing for shoes? I’m determined to limit myself to a carry-on so I’d like to pack one pair of do-everythig shoes. Hiking boots seem kind of clunky considering that we’ll be shedding our shoes whenever we go indoors. My sheepskin-lined Uggs are my first choice because they’ll keep me cozy and they’re study enough for extended walking, but what about those work days at the ashram? They’re definitely not muck-proof. I’d love to hear your thoughts about this and anything else.
I’m so looking forward to meeting you all in the beautiful Shechen Monastery guesthouse! And if anyone is getting in around noon on the 27th, let me know if you’d like to take a half-dazed taxi ride together through Kathmandu!
