I'm tired and I'm stoned, really stoned! I'll try to put this together.

On the way, flying into Honolulu.

Flying over the mountains.

I de-saturated the photo because it turned so blue from the altitude.

Now to get that Hashish!

The hash store.

A kilo should do me. I can also send some to Locker.

They use chillums here.

The TOOL made me paranoid, so I came back to my room and composed this.

I think I'm going DMV!

And people think that digging holes, taking photos and pet sitting is a bum job.

Little do they know while we're sitting in our cubes 8-5 you've got the time to make and let live.

It's a bit like a fantasy! Enjoy it my friend.

I smoked out of a chillum once in India. It's all about cupping your hands around the thing properly.

Have fun, Blitzo! Looks like a good time.

It must be the jet lag, or maybe the hashish. I am welded to my bed hallucinating! It sure is noisy here!
This place RULES!

It's around 55 degrees and overcast and it's supposed to be raining tomorrow. I guess I'll just tour the breweries. It's 11:00pm. I'm going to take a couple mandrax a pass out!

We (my brother and his friends) knew this bloke in the late 1960s and early 1970s who use to smuggle in Nepalese hash, ‘deadly’ stuff, sometimes it had white streaks (opium). Apparently, he use to fly out on flights that would stop initially at entry in the US at some airport and clear customs, and board the same plane for SF, having cleared Customs. As I was told, inflight he would stash his contraband in some ventilator ‘panel’ in the toilet (which he apparently could unscrew) prior to the US, go through customs and get back on the same flight/jet and inflight between the US port of entry, after clearing customs, gather up his stash and disembark in SF.

Don’t know how true all of that is, but he always had loads of powerful hash and photos of Nepal.

BTW, if he indeed did do to this, nowadays, especially post-9/11, one could never do this.

nice thread, i had a great time in nepal last year. but seriously, did you dig those hash shop photos from the past? i'd always heard that that good stuff's been illegal since the 70's.
anyway, can't wait to go back there, great place with great people.

True story:

So I'm leaving Nepal in Oct of 2001. As I'm going through airport security, a guard pulls me aside and asks me to remove a shoe. I ask which shoe does he want me to remove. He looks at me, my huge beard, my hippie traveling clothes, my suspicious all black backpack, and replies, "your choice." Hah! I actually didn't smoke anything in Nepal, and I definitely didn't have anything on me in the airport, but I certainly could have gotten away with it had I tried.

I went down to Freak Street, which was the Napalese Height Ashbury in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

I twitch and turn and rub my eyes. Sitting up I realize that I am still in Joshua Tree. I don't even smoke dope any more. What a weird dream!

Hashish and marijuana products were sold legally in Nepal until 1974 when the Napalese government made it illegal. One will face stiff penalties for possession these days.

Sorry for pulling your legs. Sweet deams! Blitzo

Thinking a lot of Blitzo being a fixture at our house. On the couch, at the table, barnacle in the shop or always in "his office". Hoping he's enjoying traveling the afterlife.
