Sometimes in this life, you need to step out of what is comfortable to be able to really appreciate it.
4 flights. 22 hours in the air. Half way around the world. Nepal.
Kathmandu – A valley nestled by the Himalayas and Nepal’s capital…
A city filled with pollution, poverty and deprivation. A city filled with people who work hard to survive – and survive on their faith.
The people of Nepal learn to live without.
Power is inconsistent at best. The luxuries that electricity provide don’t really exist. What good is a stove that won’t stay hot or a dryer that can never finish a load of laundry. Walking around Kathmandu you can almost feel the pollution sticking to your skin while trash lines the streets and rivers. Children beg for money and candy while parents peddle trinkets and handmade pieces.
I would still go back.
The tradition, the culture the people. The heart of Nepal is the people, and they all worth experiencing …not to mention the indescribable views that Nepal has to offer.
