How have you been? Are you getting fit and ready for the mountains? Here in friendly peaceful, clean, quiet, uncrowded Kathmandu, Nepal and Lhasa, Tibet, the charming gateway towns of the mighty Himalaya, they have had a week of family holidays and celebrations in exotic meandering little streets laden with fragrant spices, jingling bells, children singing and priests painting coloured powders in front of candlelit doorways.
