I think it should not last for too long. The main income for Nepal is Tourism, so they just can't afford not to have Tourists in. Even the Maoists know that fact and they don't attack Tourists, they merely "ask" them for donations to their cause.
So I think the King will do everything to get the Tourists back.

Yes, I'm sure youre right.

So, they're riding your ass at work, eh? Don't work too hard - what's the point if you're leaving in 2 weeks!

Nah, me Gaffa's off today, but she'll be back in tomorrow and wants to see the Manual I was working on. So I am probably going to be busy for a while with doing corrections and amendments.
But other than that, I am not working too hard, as you can see at the increase in my posts this afternoon. And I am still working on my book "How to be a Dosser and get promoted", but I need to do some more research.

One virtual hug dispatched.

[as a side note, after the failed MTL3 take over of TP, and Wocca's one man crusade, is this the moment the Irish/Irish-ish people launch their bid for global domination??]

Yeah, World Domination for the Irish. Guiness and Folk Music for everyone!
I don't think that would work as Ireland doesn't have the military strength to keep it up - they're best equipped Unit is the Field Brewery!
(Sorry guys, couldn't resist that joke).
But I think there is a plan for Irish World Domination. In every country, no matter how far away and how poor you find an Irish Pub! Even in Lusaka, Zambia. Very nice, O'Hagan's Pub, serve delicious Gammon Steak and Chips!
And they have the O'Hagan's Drinking Trophy. If you drink 20 pints of imported beers in the space of a Month your Name will be put on a plaque on the wall. I know some people who could do this in a night!

Pardus SSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH what are you blowing our cover for?

they're not supposed to know!;)

Gelli, thanks for the hug. Today, I need it!

Yup, always an Irish pub, normally with at least one Aussie bar maid/man as well.

Pardus - If the Irish are trying to conquer the world by offering free guinness, doubt there'll be a shortage of converts...

I am not Catholic and haven't been to a mass, but I suspect they serve the communal wine in a Pint glass!
But joke aside, I really like Ireland and the people, although there a some I could do without but it so much more relaxed than Switzerland. And so much more sense of humour.

In which case, Nikki, get your arse on a flight on Fri or early Sat and join us in toasting the Irish (and say hello, watch rugby, get hammered etc). Anything to reduce cost of beer...
