I'm a retired, American expat loving my life in Nepal. If you are planning to come to Nepal you will enjoy my blog and e-book, Nepal: A Tourist's Manual, which you can do a search for. I wrote it because I realized shortly after I arrived that my money wasn't lasting as long as I had hoped. I started learning everything I could about how Nepali society works and many ways to have a great time in Nepal without so much stress or expense.
My latest project is bringing lower income, retired women to Nepal to live like queens. You can look up 'Ye Ole Bitches Retreat Center' for information on that. Bottom line is they can come here and stay in my guest house for only $500 a month for a long term adventure. My goal is actually to bring 100 women, but I have to start small. These women are going to have the time of their lives in Nepal rather than staying home and freezing all winter without enough money to have fun.
