[edit] Description of Service

I helped set up a small research library consisting primarily of Asian studies materials, at Tribhuvan University, Center for Nepal and Asian Studies. I lived in the Nag Pokhari area of Kathmandu, and used to bicycle the few miles to work everyday, going through the main part of the bazaar, past the temples and through the crowds, even getting soaked in the monsoon. It's amazing what one can do when one is young. Not having had much professional experience as a librarian before joining the Peace Corps, I'm not sure how effective I was. It was hard to get alot of basic things done in Nepal in any case, at least in the 1970s. I have always thought that one of the main points of the Peace Corps was to give Americans an idea and appreciation of life in countries like Nepal. Kathmandu and Nepal have, since, always informed my life and hardly a day goes by without thoughts about Nepal and South Asia.
