When you get to Nepal
spend a day wandering
around near the charnel grounds
. Sit on the bench
overlooking the river. (Don't let the monkeys steal
) When you smell
the burning bodies
don't innocently tell your other (or self), "It's not THAT bad, really."
Definitely stay to watch as the sun goes down and lights go on around the temple complex. Look across the river. See those sparkling lights on the golden roof?
