Live from Kathmandu! Miscellany!

What are the odds that we woud find TWO amorous bulls in love with motorcycles?   Dan tells me that this young bull also licked the motorcycle seat as foreplay!

My beautiful girlfriend Pratima has opened her new beauty parlor/facial salon on the Mahenkel Road in Boudha.   Pratima hired my artist Megh Raj Thapa for the painting on the windows.  

Pratima recently studied at a beauty college in Delhi and runs a full service salon, offering waxing, skincare, manicures and pedicures, as well as hairdressing.  I'm definitely going to give her a try!

Sundown from our balcony at the Dragon Guest House in Boudha.   That large blue roof is a carpet factory.

Dinner was vegetable curry with potato paratha and garlin naan at the Cafe Dream.   The food was delicious and it all came out hot - though not at the same time.

I felt I was in a bit of a time 'warp' with this menu.   Could 'Cardom Bull' possibly be 'Cordon Bleu'?

This little Nepali Spitz dog named Sing-ee  (We call him Siggy after our boxer friend in San Diego) joined us for breakfast at a friend's house.  Spitz's are very popular here in Nepal.

This long-haired dachshund lives in a monastery right next door to where we had breakfast.   This guy has just had his bath and is soaking wet and is rubbing mightily to dry off.

Today was the day when they spray new yellow water around the Boudhanath Stupa.   There were some ladies in their native dress that were involved somehow.   This is the view that i have right now as I look over my right shoulder.   Wish you were here.

Stay tuned.   More tomorrow.

I am back in Nepal for the 9th Danger Dog trip and am accepting commissions now.   I'll be back to the states in early June, just in time for Father's Day presents.  


To order, please send me a photo of your pet.   I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of paintings and three people will get work.   Each painting is about one square foot and is on metal with synthetic enamel paint.   These can be hung indoors or out, be framed or unframed.

Satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front.   If you do not like one of the three, you pay nothing, and the 3 artists are paid in full in any case.   Let me know what you want it to say and that's it!

Send your photo to or find out more at

Let's keep these artists painting.

American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.
