Oct 5, 2013 - The journey out

After a quick breakfast of milk tea and hard boiled eggs, we headed back down the hill we'd climbed two days ago. It was still slippery and wet from the rain but the day had dawned clear so it was a beautiful view, when you dared look away from where your foot had to go next. Once down it was a wonderful hike along the road where we were passed by many donkey trains heading up with supplies and other cargo. All the donkeys wear bells around their neck so they make a unique jingling sound as they approach and pass. The photo labeled...

Oct 4, 2013 - A day in Martadi

I got a slack day in Martadi while Shanda and crew visited the local hospital and other facilities and met with local officials.

Oct 1, 2013 - UN World Food Program sites

While in Dadeldhura, we visited several sites in the area, some managed by the UN World Food Program (WFP). The first site was a Nepal gov't run hospital. The next, funded by WFP was a local school. That school was equipped with small "laptop" computers that cost about $100 each. They are provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation and recharged via solar power. They are used to teach the children language and math skills. We next visited a village down a long one way road. WFP is providing paid jobs to locals to build roads and...
