|Nuns at a monastery just outside Kathmandu.|
It already seems like a hundred years ago, but just last month we were in Nepal. While there I took a day hike with Social Tours to get out of the city and get some exercise. Their Lunch with Nuns Tour found me and my guide walking the trails in Shivapuri National Park. Our steps carried us through dry hillsides desperately awaiting the rainy season, past monkeys who eyeballed my backpack even as they scampered away, and finally up to a monastery. It was here that I snapped this photo, settled down to a lovely lunch (not with the nuns, but prepared by and near them), before hiking back down through a series of small villages. It was easily one of my best days on the trip.
