OK! So I am packed, which never takes long as I have few clothes and I always take the same thing anyway. I have no idea what the weather is going to be like in Nepal, but I think I am covered.
I have written out instructions for the horses. James knows what to do with the dogs, I still have to get Imodium though! The birds are OK, the eagle eggs are fertile so we cross everything they hatch while I am away. The loos are probably going to be done by the end of this coming week.
My sister has just told me that Chitwan National Park which is one of our stops is a long way from Kathmandu, and I think we are going by bus!!!! I wonder if I should tell my travel companions that I get bus sick!! I will not have time to climb something in the Himalayas - what a shame!
So its all systems go, the weather was lovely here yesterday and not quite so lovely today, its raining. But I will still miss home and every one here. And doesn't Acer look cheerful on Richards quad bike!



I have to say that keeping a weblog can at times become compulsive and at other times a chore. Sometimes I am berrated for not keeping it up and sometimes I get wonderful comments from people who follow the news of the Centre.

It is fun to share the daily goings on here, some good and some bad, some funny and some sad, but all a part of our daily lives.
And as I said before its a pretty cool to be here and it is a great place to visit, you should try coming and watching the birds and meeting the staff and of course the dogs.

An interesting video on Lead

An interesting video on Lead

I find it staggering that people who want to hunt don't see the value in changing their ammunition from lead to a safer product. We have stopped using lead in petrol, in paint, in our water pipes, but they still want to use lead - ah well, apparently eating it not only kills birds but leads to reduced intelligence in humans......................

NO ONE is asking you to stop legal and genuine hunting, they are just asking you to change your ammunition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
