Homestay


This is my homestay brother and sister from Dharamsala. Sonam, on the right, works for the government in conflict resolution and is also an actor. He stars in the Tibetan refugee movie Phun Anu Thanu. It's pretty funny. My sister, Dolma, stays at home and did most all the cooking. I got a sweet chili sauce recipee from her.

Happy Thanksgiving, Jesse. We had a nice visit with your parents a few weeks ago and they said you'd be spending some time in Thailand around Christmas. I've spent quite a bit of time in Thailand, mostly Chiang Mai, and would love to give you any tips if you're wondering about places to go, stay, etc. Anyway, thanks for keeping us all up to date with your travels. I think you'll be surprised to know how many people anxiously await your updates. Be safe and have fun.
Namaste and aloha, Marybeth:)

Happy Thanksgiving Jesse,
I am in Chicago at Amanda's house. Everyone here whishes you their best. Don't cry since you can't see me in the holiday season. I am sure you will find a way to deal with the overwhelming grief somehow. Have you gotten some tabla drums of your own yet? You will have to teach me when you return. Well Herman, I am sure you are having an amazing time wherever you are. Happy Holidays.

Hi Jesse!
I can't wait to hear you play tablas, you are probably learning to play them in the best way possible. Lucky! Well i'm so happy to hear of all the amazing things you're doing every day, but i'm still excited for you to come back. I have something for you, just in case you decide you want to come home early to get it. Anyways, hope you stay healthy and safe! Can't wait to hear more about your trip.
Namaste
Amanda
