Back In Manjushree's Valley

AFter a small hiatus, blogdai is back in Kathmandu.

So, look for the following stories over the next few weeks:

---We will track down and find an actual "Field Office" for the International Crisis Group, if there is such a thing.

---Will get some photos and interviews on the "Anatomy of a Street Protest" to see who's paying for what and who belongs to those faces we see in the crowds over and over again.

---We will get to the bottom of that mystery reporter from "one of the largest media houses in Kathmandu" who breathlessly reported on conditions right after the takeover. Blogdai smells a big phony here and has good info on how to proceed. Stay tuned.

---Actual interviews from the Nepali in the street. What are their feelings for once? No spoiled expatriots soiling the discussion.

So, lots to do. See you in a week or so. Remember, don't click on any links from off-topic postings on this blog; it took blogdai a week to get rid of the blog spam.

Let's start this show,

Oh, Blodaiji, woe be upon the comment spam. Turn on Blogger's word verification feature, which does a helluva job with comment spam.

After you log into Blogger and you're past the Dashboard screen, in the main editor (with the the Posting, Settings, Template, View Blog tabs visible, click on Settings. Then, click on the sub-tab for Comments. Half-way down the page you'll see a toggle for "Show word verification for comments?" Set the toggle to "Yes."

Check out Blogger's article here. It's worked for all the blogs I've been a part of. Promise.

Done, thanks for the tip.

Scott, I owe you one. Hey, you were in the Peace Corps in Nepal; let me know if you need anything or would like to make contact with someone. We've got a pretty good network, so let me put it at your disposal.

Thanks again,

No prob, Blogdai. I'm glad to be of service. I've really enjoyed your blog, so that's service enough. And my wife is Nepali, so I've got my own "network" at my disposal. ;-)

One thing you can do for me, though, is if you're ever in Birganj, stop by Himanchal Cabin. Have one of their very sweet, very delicious coffees, and say hi to Veejay (Rajkarnikar) for me. I think about him and his dhaba all the time.

If you ever need any "technical" assistance, feel free to let me know.

Will do. Not in Birganj so far as I know, but will send word down there.
