Impending Doom… and other stuff

Categories:Ramblings

After a long absence and spotty posting at best I am returning to the far and weird reaches of the Himalayas. A number of people made all sorts of ridiculous requests for things from Batman, a few others want salt candles… People are weird.

The last few times I visited Nepal were well documented and superbly written about in my opinion but some people continue to fixate on the monkey fights and various semi lethal things that roam the countryside. As a result of this blasphemous attack upon my integrity I have chosen to bring along a completely biased witness of questionable judgement.
My brother David.

It's not inverted, he is a weird leftist

Before your start suggesting that his judgement might in fact bear up under scrutiny let me remind you that this dumb bastard agreed to come with me after having read my previous posts.


When I get back to Canada I will be living in one of the most miserable places I have ever been. Red Deer. This place is over an hour from anywhere, on a good day. Seven months of the year it is an icy hellscape.

I can hear you wondering why on Earth I would live in such a place, well. I am doing it purely for the money.
Quite a few years back I lived there and made the acquaintance of several of the local reprobates who inexplicably find themselves in need of a flatmate. Assuming this doesn’t devolve into a lord of the flies situation I should be able to collect funds for some future endeavor. Either way it will be entertaining to watch.

    Wish we were going there again too! Looking forward to hearing how the place is faring after the earthquakes – what favourite haunts did/did not survive etc. I do wonder about Boudranath Stupa, beautiful place. And the little people who owned the café we frequented there. And our favourite street beggars. So may good memories.

      Well I am here until August so you could book your ticket now. Or wait until next time I come here, probably less than a year 🙂
