The Whole World is a Single Flower group says goodbye in Nepal…

I travel back to Varanasi, and on to Delhi by overnight train with Robin, Diana, and Arthur…

Then the four of us hit the road again…this time by cab (12 hours) up to Dharmsala in the foothills of the Himalayas, where the Tibetan government in exile resides…

We chill out for five days. It’s a welcome break from constant travel and 5 a.m. wakeup calls. There are lots of western travellers in town, which means good coffee, cheap massages, and lots of food choices. Pizza!

We visit the temple and residence of the Dalai Lama. (Alas, he’s not in town.)

And volunteer for English tutoring…

Cool temperatures and clean air! Ahhh!
