Apparently El Nino is affecting the monsoon this year. It’s coming however, but it is late. Still, it is not hot enough in Kathmandu to preclude trail running. Especially if you head for the trees, where it remains sweat-drippingly cool. Shivapuri lies to the north of the Kathmandu Valley and is a protected area. It’s […]

This was a very fun morning. Around 50 children of varying ages lined up – in one very very wide line – to start a one kilometer race. One kilometer but at 3500m/10,000ft of altitude!
