The November course for this year has finished. It seems like it just started. I will be leaving for Bhutan on Dec. 9 and returning to Kathmandu on Dec. 16. I am not sure of the internet access there but I imagine it shouldn’t be a problem.
Lama Zopa long life celebration.
As a group we were all bused to Swayambhunath stupa. Probably the second most holy site in Kathmandu after Boudhanath stupa. We all circumambulated the site which took approximately one hour.

Tibetans doing Kora. Every late afternoon, hundreds of Tibetans and others come to the stupa to do Kora’s and say mantras as they walk around the stupa. This is considered to be the holiest site in all of Nepal for Tibetan Buddhists.
