A postcard from Nepal: Manakamana

We rode a cable car to the top of a mountain to find a Hindu temple that draws thousands of believers. Many arrive barefooted. The small town that has sprung up to serve their needs is full of shops selling garlands, offerings and even chickens and goats for sacrifices.

Other people’s beliefs are often mysterious to outsiders, maybe even to themselves. So maybe this is an appropriate postcard to share with Terri for Sunday Stills?
