After a day in Maigum, I walked into town to grab my gear and then Jean and I headed straight to our homestay. I was still a bit disappointed that the plans did not work out to stay in Maigum village (more remote and among the "farmers"), but I took some deep breaths and got over my diva moment. We are now staying in the middle of the Bazaar with Gopal and Kobita one of the few Christian families in Besishar. They have two kids, Christina who is 10 and Bisaal who is 15 and studying in Kathmandu. Gopal is a tailor and his shop is right below their flat.

Home is in North Carolina. But, I take seriously Wendell Berry's imperative, "Be like the fox who makes more tracks than necessary, some in the wrong direction."
