I stayed with Piers in his former homestay in Udaipur (Rajasthan, India) and visited him when he moved to the new place in Bandipur (Nepal). He did another great job with the building and the whole community around the new place. He has got an excellent taste and a good sense for service (and humor too). The homestay was built in the old and typical nepalese architecture: bricks and dark wooden windows and colums. Each room has a different topic and is furnitured tastefully. Each room has a balcony facing the majestic mountains (if they show up). Each room has a nice bathroom with hot shower coming from the solar panels. There is a dining room where Piers sometimes shows movies via beamer. You can sit outside as well. Its still improving and a bit of building work around, which makes you realise how all this happens. Piers has a lot of plans for creating an environmentally and sustainable community - its fascinating to see this energy of one person and his power to make his dream come true. Will definetely go back. Thank you all for your kind hospitality and hope to see you all again in good health.
