Nepal Earthquake

27 Apr

I am sure you have been following the news on Nepal and the earthquake that struck last Saturday. This video gives a nice overview of Kathmandu, the capital.  It’s hard to believe I was just there two weeks ago, my third trip to Nepal. I hiked to Everest Base Camp, the scene of avalanches and several deaths.  I also had the chance to walk around some amazing World Heritage sites, hundreds of years old during my final weekend in Kathmandu. Many of these are now destroyed. I will be adding further information or editing this post to add links and information about how you can help the people of Nepal.
