Superstitii in Nepal

If someone is offered rakshi (a Nepalese alcohol) as a toast, he must take either one or three glasses. But not two.
To drink only two glasses of rakshi is bad luck.
To see a snake or a cat, especially a black one, cross the road is a bad omen.
In a conversation about witches the listener must constantly check behind his ear in case any witches might be hiding there.
To see someone wearing his shirt inside out or to wear a shirt inside out is bad luck.
If a man sees an empty vessel before he leaves on a journey or in the course of a journey he will receive bad luck. Therefore his family places a full pot of water on the gate when he leaves.
If a man sees a snake in a dream it indicates that he will have trouble in the near future.

Ir spunea...

...si imi e tot mai dor de simplitate. la fel cum imi e dor de frumos.
pot sta o zi fara mancare, chiar doua, dar nu pot sta nici o clipa fara frumos. si totusi cati nu dau mancarea pe frumos...

si tocmai azi, de ziua lui Venus...

Cred ca virtutea este sa gasesti frumosul in orice te inconjoara, nu musai in zonele frumoase spre are te uiti ca sa il gasesti...
Si atunci vei vedea ca esti mereu inconjurata de frumos!
Gratie, draga mea!
