Rick and I are still enjoying the comforts of our fancy-pants hotel in Kathmandu. We’ve just finished eating breakfast in bed (because fancy-pants hotel), and are contemplating venturing out to wander the streets of the Thamel district to get some delicious coffee from Himalayan Java.

Those were good times, […]Read more "Anti-Naparticles And The Nap-Event Horizon"

I know, it’s crazy – I mean, why wouldn’t I want to stay home and eat a sad dinner on my sad stairs given that my […]Read more "All Night Long"

In fact, we spent a significant amount of time last night organizing our gear and laying everything out for the trek, including setting […]Read more "Grizzlies – Smarter Than Your Average Bear"
