"I didn't know Eddie had died. His most memorable remark to me was at a Keith Dowman party in Kathmandu in 1994. "Hi Eddie"I said, "remember me from 1970?" "No" he replied "Still commuting between Nepal and Goa?" I asked, "Oh yes" he replied, "never been west of Kabul since 1963."

"The only memorable anecdotes I have of Eddy may be a bit obscure. When I first met him in 1969/70 he claimed to have no desires. At that time he spent the winters in Goa and summers in Kathmandu, so I asked him why he 'chose' to live in these two places. His answer seemed appropriate in the context of Aldous Huxley's famous book, Eddy told me that these two places were the greatest heaven and hell on earth. I don't think 'outsiders' would understand but Eddy took care of people and there were quite a few casualties on the beach at the time."
