Nepal Disaster Relief Update #9
You might be reading in the news about aid moving slowly here, and this is why: There are literally hundreds of villages just like this, on the edge of a mountain, thousands of feet up, scattered all over Nepal. They are only accessible by helicopter or hiking for days. You can't really carry tons of aid in. This is why aid work in Nepal is nearly impossible in some regions without helicopters - some villagers are moving to new locations, most seem to staying.
Back up in the mountains today. Believe it or not this building is a restaurant and u can order complete meals as well as snacks.
Beautiful children here in Nepal. They are putting their hands together as a customary greeting when they say "namaste", they are not praying or asking for anything. They remind if of the children I saw in the Philippines - possession-less and completely happy.
