In Latin, the noun stuppa means “tow,” the course part of flax that was used in antiquity as a stopper-upper of flowing water.
Duffle, in the Bokononist sense, is the destiny of thousands upon thousands of persons when placed in the hands of a stuppa.
_Falarica erat Saguntinis, missile telum hastili abiegno -- id, sicut in pilo, quadratum stuppa circumligabant, linebantque pice: -- quod cum medium accensum mitteretur_, etc.
So the first stop is at Boudhanath which is approx 5 km from Thamel and is another area where Tibetans have settled and where the largest stuppa is found.
