Getting ready to take our wonderful, exciting, adventurous trip across the world with my man Bill! We fly out this afternoon & evening to rendezvous in 17 hours in New Delhi and then on to Kathmandu, Nepal. Meggie, my daughter meets up with us there and we take her on a beautiful trek to Panchase to visit Bill`s three lovely friends, the Didi`s. After trekking the shopping begins back in Pokhara and Kathmandu for new jewelry pieces or findings with fabulous silver work and turquoise and old coral. I`ll be posting as often as I can with photos too so you can have a headstart on seeing my inspirations for new work! Check on me often cause you know if Bill is involved, it will be interesting. Namaste and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

So, here in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India, land of the Rajs. Toured the beautiful Amber Fort, built about 1,000 years ago. Our hotel is previously in another lifetime a very old home really laid back kind of inexpensive hangout for folks from all over. From the rooftop restaurant we saw green parrots fly by and kites flying from other rooftops as well as the Pink Palace in the heart of town in the 18th century. It's a really cool place but i am getting totally ripped off by the vendors and I still haven't found my jewelry parts. Maybe tomorrow. photos to come.

India! Arrived in Delhi today. What a place. People EVERYWHERE! Dirty streets like Kathmandu but more modern and more craziness. I do not want to cross one of these streets on foot! More frightening than Rome. Hotel turns out to be a modern haven behind the dirty facade. Did end up walking to a very good restaurant a. Good hot shower . To bed now.

WOW, New Years eve in Pokhara, Nepal! Woke up to a scheduled paragliding outing. Rode in jeep to the top of Sarenkote to take off. Oh my gosh, awesome experience. The city, Lake Phewa Tal, and then when we turned the fabulous Annapurnas mountains! We also went face to face with a vulture! A spectacular experience! Photos are coming, I promise!

We are here! Arrived in Kathmandu after rendezvous with Bill in Delhi. Great massage in Delhi airport. Views of the Annapurnas from the flight. Awesome. Meggie off on her own when we arrived. Says she only got lost in those crazy streets of Kathmandu about 5 times. We hooked up and toured Durbar Square and the old Royal Palace at Coronation Plaza where Meggie & I got kicked out for taking photos. Oops! The Kumari, living Goddess, looked out her little window but didn`t actually smile upon us like the one that has been sent to pasture did in 2008. Oh no, I hope Bill & I can keep our fantastic relationship going without that sacred smile upon us. We are now in Pokhara, Nepal`s second largest city on Lake Phewa Tal. Tomorrow we trek to Panchase to visit Bill`s women friends the DiDis. Definitely no wifi there. Back in a day or two.
We have been gone for 26 hours now. Denise and I are sitting in the cafe at Delhi airport waiting on our flight to Kathmandu. Denise is asking the waiter which breakfast fits her ayurvedic dosha type. He is looking at her like she is from Mars....in 5hrs we will be with Meggie (Denise's daughter) who arrived in Nepal last night. We can't wait to see her and see how she likes this exotic land of the Himalayas.
