John suggested a reading marathon on one of these weekends to catch up on the books yet unfinished or unread. We need to finish at least half before the next trip to Kathmandu brings back another backpack-ful of titles. Blissful and missed are the days of doing nothing but sleep, eat and read accompanied by rain showers along the Phewa Tal in Pokhara. I digress, egads… there are four poor books that have been collecting dust since 2007! More to record on recent baking (sans oven) and cooking experiments, music albums on rotation and movies watched, but alas, sleep beckons for tonight…
