It´s a great idea - bumming around Nepal practicing Buddhism or whatever kind of spirituality as opposed to working all our life can actually get a person somewhere.
Working - you can have a nice family, car, friends and all that - but know nothing of the inner life of man and if something unexpected that wasn´t planned happens
Suffering follows.

Life in Kathmandu has its troubles, too. A lot of the foreigners create their own problems.

Romantic troubles and all that kind of stuff. :|
