from Paula & her husband Jim. Concerning Lumpini, we will have to depend on
information from Stella & Parshu.
My fear is that similar things are going on in both Lumpini & Bodhgaya
(about which I know somewhat more), altho the commercialization is much more
advanced in Bodhgaya, where the poor farmers are losing the land on which they
sharecrop to the construction of hotels & Buddhist monuments.
Btw, I will be visiting Japan for a few days around April 7 - 10.
Be cool ;-)
