    is that the circuit often leaves the original trail dumping onto said road Sad but inevitable in our time obsessed day and age and I ve been as guilty as the next in taking advantage of such conveniences That said there were lots of spectacular portions of the original trail for us today just as yesterday including several bridge crossings and plenty of climbing descending on amazing rockwork Lawrence Grassi

    were finally off the road and the trail was fantastic It was everything I had pictured for a trek in Nepal a narrow rocky path teetering along sheer cliffs with a thundering river far below Waterfalls splashed down from impossible heights where clouds swirled with the afternoon buildup We had a great lunch at Ghermu overlooking a huge cascade 111 meters high We continued our trek hopscotching over a few

    lost time while shaving years off my life It took me a while to realize that the incessant blaring of horns was actually part of a complex pattern of driver communication along with flashing headlights hand signals and blinking turn lights I could eventually relax though we barreled head long into a wall of oncoming traffic only to weave and bob our way through with centimeters to spare That allowed

    or Monkey Temple so named for the legions of furry beasts that populate the area The Temple grounds are beautiful sitting high on a hill overlooking the Kathmandu valley and were filled with worshippers and onlookers Next was Pashupatinath Temple one of the more sacred Hindu sites but also important for Buddhists as well The Temple is devoted to Shiva the Destroyer of Hindu mythology and sits on the banks of the holy waters of the Bagmati River There is an important and active cremation site here used by many Hindu It s difficult to describe the impact of bearing witness to a cremation in so public a forum The first impulse is to turn away from what one assumes is such a personal and sorrowful event The mourners first bath the body themselves in the Bagmati before it is carried by them to the funeral pyre for its final release back into the five basic elements of Hindu belief I watched a family bid farewell to their father so different from my own Dad s funeral and cremation some of whose ashes I spread in the Rocky Mountains just before leaving for Nepal Different yet somehow the same The
