"All I can remember of Lumbini was the thousands and thousands of prayer flags.
And the incredible sense of peace.
Some were faded, some fresh from the nearby stalls, and all were strung up from the tree under which Buddha was born.
The other thing I remember is my boyfriend blissed out after an Indian Head massage.
Why wasn't I the one getting the massage?
Well, much to my dismay in India this is a tradition that men get to enjoy at the makeshift barber shops scattered along the pavements. When I say "shop" I mean a mirror strung up on a fence and chair.
So my guinea pig boyfriend got lots of Indian Head massages in Lumbini, Varanasi, Delhi and Orccha (which he ended up getting addicted to) whilst I watched and took lots of notes.
Back here in Oz, anyone can get one from Ripple. Deeply relaxing, it will give you a little piece of the peace I found in Lumbini." Alison
