Kathmandu, Nepal

Mingma and Ang Doma’s baby was named today. His name is Tsering Pemba Sherpa.  Tsering means Long Life and Pemba means Saturday.  Sherpas are named after days of the week.  Mingma means Tuesday. Oh, in case you are wondering, the Lama chose the name which was his idea. Surprise, surprise. Set forth below are (i) a photo of Tsering Pemba Sherpa and his proud parents and (ii) my Puja experience. There have been some interesting political developments in Nepal over the last couple of days.  I’ll report on them tomorrow.
