PLEASE PRAY FOR NEPAL! Things are a bit confusing here today: arsonists burned down a school overnight so the government closed all schools because of possible further attacks. But there is no fuel to run the buses to get the children to school anyways because Hindu extremists (there are no Muslim extremists here as yet), pressuring for a Hindu state, have blockaded the border with India for the last 3 months + prevented fuel + medicine from coming into Nepal. Then the Maoist party declared a general strike today to pressure the Communist government to put pressure against the Indian government which is supporting the Hindu extremists. So Nepal is locked in a power struggle + that means… no fuel or buses for Prem + I to travel to Pokhara in the Himalayas today, but tomorrow??? Hopefully!
