Nepal in the '90s during the "people power" uprising

Host Dave Mazza interviews travel writer Jeff Greenwald about his experiences in Nepal in the '90s during the "people power" uprising.  His new book Snake Lake explores his time beneath the Himalayas as he wins the friendship of a high lama who reveals the pillars of Tibetan Buddhism; embarks on a passionate romance; and discovers what democracy means to rural Nepalese citizens -- all while covering the revolution for a major US newspaper.
