Vajra at Swayambhunath Stupa

Vajra at Swayambhunath Stupa
Made by ~~ `Nostalgia' ~~
Swayambhunath (Devnagari: स्वयम्भूनाथ स्तुप; is an ancient religious complex top of a hill in the Kathmandu Valley. It is also known as the Monkey Temple as there are holy monkeys living in parts of the temple in the north-west. For the Buddhist Newars in whose mythological history and origin myth as well as day-to-day religious practice, Swayambhunath occupies a central position, it is probably the most sacred among Buddhist pilgrimage sites. The Swayambhunath complex consists of a stupa, a variety of shrines and temples, some dating back to the Licchavi period. A Tibetan monastery, museum and library are more recent additions. The stupa has Buddha's eyes and eyebrows painted on. Between them, there is something painted which looks like the nose - but is the Nepali symbol of 'unity', in the main Nepali language dialect. The site has two access points: a long stairway, claimed to have 365 steps, leading directly to the main platform of the temple, which is from the top of the hill to the east; and a car road around the hill from the south leading to the southwest entrance. The first sight on reaching the top of the stairway is the Vajra.

Something exciting happened the other night. We saw a protest bu the YCL - the Young Communist League. This group was protesting the Prime Minister commenting earlier in the week that YCL really means the Young Criminal League. More or less this group is a splintar group of the Maoists and their relationship with hte political leaders of the Maoists is unclear, but recently this organization has been in the news a lot for doing things like stoning the American ambassador's car and arresting corrupt officials themselves to force the police into action.

This picture also includes Karma Sherpa, Pemba Sherpa, Babu Sherpa and Sonam Sherpa (from left to right). They are part of the great team of people who helped us safely get up and down the mountains.

Made by mckaysavage
The tourist district of Thamel is a warren of busy, narrow streets. Shops spill out to compete for space with hawkers, touts and bicycle rickshaws. It is a bustle of signs and cries and horns, but there are plenty of cafes and rooftops to calm one's nerves and as a popular traveller's destination, you are never far from a German bakery, restaurant serving pizza or a CD shop blaring popular tunes. My favorite was the live music scene and a cup of Nepali masala chai on a rooftop or courtyard patio.

Thamel under curfew

Normally this place is crowded with tourists and locals plying their trade. But in the spring of 2006 the city was in a state of siege. What few tourists that remained took refuge in the courtyard cafes behind closed shutters. From my view of the 2006 revolution in Kathmandu [06_141]

Back safely in Kathmandu, flight out of Lukla was quite an experience :) Going to use the beard as a fundraiser, it's driving me nuts with the tickle/itch. Y'all have to give me a few bob to shave it off :) Sunburnt from Island Peak, even the earlobes! Marvellous experience!

The other view of the Thamel district of Kathmandu: the rooftops. Above street level, the houses, shops and restaurants formed a complex 3-D landscape. Many restaurants would have a hidden patio or even more than one on different levels, looking out at unique vantage points.
