Oh dude thats pretty cool

2018-12-30 04:09:39 UTC  

Dude jealous

2018-12-30 04:09:46 UTC  

Always wanted to go to Nepal

2018-12-30 04:09:46 UTC  

I had a Nepali co-worker in Japan (they are so desperate for English speakers they hire Nepali). She was the first person I ever heard proudly tell people she avoided dating non-Nepali because she wanted to carry on their bloodline / legacy. And no one called her racist.

2018-12-30 04:09:56 UTC  

You’ll have to post a lot of pics

2018-12-30 04:10:51 UTC  

I keep seeing adverts for English teachers in places like Japan or Korea

2018-12-30 04:10:57 UTC  

and... I would be so godamn nervous about doing that

2018-12-30 04:11:38 UTC  

I don't know exactly what I'll be doing there yet, but my buddy went last year for the same reason and they spent a week in Kathmandu, a week at the Military Academy there, and a week building mud huts in some village.

2018-12-30 04:11:58 UTC  

how much work is involved in building mud huts?

2018-12-30 04:12:13 UTC  

step 1: get mud
step 2: make it sorta brick shaped
step 3: build hut
rinse, repeat

2018-12-30 04:12:32 UTC  

It should be interesting

2018-12-30 04:13:03 UTC  

Physical labor but uh. Not mentally taxing yeah.

2018-12-30 04:13:17 UTC  

The roads over there are spooky

2018-12-30 04:13:26 UTC  

@Salo Saloson you could also do a mud hut with wattle at the structural element and mud smeared on

2018-12-30 04:13:32 UTC  

I’ve been to a part of India near there

2018-12-30 04:13:38 UTC  

Roads are 30000% yikes

2018-12-30 04:13:59 UTC  

Railroads were all built by the English

2018-12-30 04:14:15 UTC  

I was on some pretty bad roads today. Went up to some tiny town by the Canadian Border

2018-12-30 04:15:44 UTC  

I want to say some airport over there near Sikkim or Nepal is the most dangerous on earth

2018-12-30 04:16:05 UTC  

Woah some of you have white names discord is not working

2018-12-30 04:16:31 UTC  

Normal on my end

2018-12-30 04:16:57 UTC  

Also yes new rule: if you go abroad post cool pics

2018-12-30 04:17:10 UTC  

I want to see all the Buddhist temples in Kathmandu

2018-12-30 04:17:40 UTC  

Are they mostly Buddhist or Hindu?

2018-12-30 04:18:21 UTC  

I think a bit of both

2018-12-30 04:18:31 UTC  

Makes sense yeah

2018-12-30 04:18:53 UTC  

Everything will be cheap which’ll be cool

2018-12-30 04:19:33 UTC  

funny enough my Great Grandfather converted to Hinduism

2018-12-30 04:19:59 UTC  

Interesting. Did he live over in that part of the world?

2018-12-30 04:20:17 UTC  

How do you convert? Interested in knowing how diff religions convert and the time it takes

2018-12-30 04:20:50 UTC  

Islam you say a sentence three times. Jews dissuade you from converting and it takes years lol

2018-12-30 04:21:06 UTC  

Nope, born and died in Montana. He found some old copies of the Vedas and kept buying more books on the subject.....or at least that's what I've been told

2018-12-30 04:21:49 UTC  

"A Hindu in Montana" sounds like a movie title

2018-12-30 04:22:59 UTC  

He was a stone mason, and he built a few monuments around Montana with quotes from the Bhagavad Gita

2018-12-30 04:23:27 UTC  

Sounds about a few steps from Ted K. “Montana man adopts odd beliefs in a cabin”

2018-12-30 04:27:25 UTC  

Sounds like 7 years in Tibet

2018-12-30 04:28:03 UTC  

Except like

2018-12-30 04:28:11 UTC  

Lotsa years outside Bozeman

2018-12-30 04:39:27 UTC  

"Let me tell you about Dharma, kids"

2018-12-30 04:40:51 UTC  

I like to think I can still listen to the other side, even if I don't take anything they say seriously anymore. But day by day it gets more unbearable, especially NPR.

2018-12-30 04:42:49 UTC  

@Stephen - TX npr is my radio default in my car. Leave it on for 5 mins on way to work until I can’t take it anymore
