as you may or may not know, i'm in houston pending an announcement from peace corps as to where i'm to go for the next two years of my life. well my expected departure date was early to mid january but just recently i found out some frustrating news. apparently there has been civil unrest of some sort in the south pacific island where i was supposed to serve (they named a cocktail after it, but i can't quite remember what it is. somewhere near samoa), and therefore the country has withdrawn its request for me. so instead, i'm set back living with microwaves and cadillacs for another five months or so, until the peace corps can set me up with another deal. right now, they've got me pencilled in for nepal! now this isn't 100% certain, but my mind is already reeling from the awesome thought of being in nepal for two years. climbing the himalayas with saged sherpas, singing kumbaya in katmandu, raiding the lost ark, you name it. actually, my knowledge of nepal is very limited. does anyone know anything of substance about the country?

All I know is that they'll shoot you if you claim to be Bob Seger.

I'd really like to go to Nepal. Rent 'Little Buddha,' and then pretend the whole country will be like that. Maybe it will.

i went to the local library today to see what books they have on nepal. all i could find was a small book in the juvinile section (it's not a very big library). actually, the book is pretty informative, and it's got lots of gorgeous pictures of leather skinned folk hiking up faggots of firewood through the himalayas, indian tigers roaming through the jungle of the Terai. i'm quite excited about the entire prospect.
