Beautiful Moon and Little Sun / Kathmandu today 22.11.15

First action when I arrived at the orphanage was to introduce me to the new baby. He is 3 weeks old, his name is Beautiful Moon and of course he is gorgeous.  Laxmi said to me: “He is your son. Now you and I have a baby.”:) Many of her neighbors asked her to give…

Nepal I am coming again / Help Raising Funds

“Time to let go.” /Ready for Heaven¬†

Today we went to Pashupatinath. The good news: It is hardly effected by the earthquakes. As this is the most famous place you can imagine how busy it is, especially a few weeks ago … The atmosphere is peaceful and calm. People watch the ceremonies and some had something like a little pick nick. I…
