Kathmandu, Part 1

Danny Solis, Matt Mason and I have arrived in Kathmandu, Nepal and started programs for A Poetry Slam Fortnight in Nepal, a Cultural Envoy Program through the US Embassy.

This is my first time in Asia, and I’m busy adjusting my mind and body to this continent in between lectures, workshops, performances, dinners, power outages, radio interviews, newspaper interviews and sightseeing.

Our hosts are warm and generous, the students are cool and smart and the other Nepali poets we’ve met are awesome!
