Shopping in Kathmandu was fun too. There are all sorts of fun trinkets to bring home. Here are some of the options:


These puppets had four faces. Two of the faces were Lord Ganesha on one side and Lord Shiva on another side – I cannot remember who the other two faces were. Very, very cool.


More puppets. Fun, Fun.


These lions are posed out side many of the temples. They have dragonish heads and protect the temples. I bought a small brass set of these to bring home with us. It can’t hurt to have these babies watchin’ out for us.


What do you want to be for Halloween? Have not decided yet. Pick one – these masks were amazing.



I cannot remember what this is called – someone help me out please – but it a Buddhist symbol and it represents peace. (thank you readers – it is a varja or a dorje)


This was funny – I have a few of these motorcycle statues in our home in the U.S. because, at one point, number one Hubby owned a motorcycle. I prefer this smaller, unrideable version to the real thing. It made me laugh that it was on sale at a temple.  If I had brought a larger suitcase this baby would have come back to India with us for sure. Beneath the motorcycle in the picture, you can see singing bowls and prayer wheels. They are remarkable.


This is the full life version of a prayer wheel, but many mini versions were on sale too.

    I’m pretty sure I could use a prayer wheel right about now!
