Pokhara’s peaceful Phewa Lake
This is the second post in a series where I’ll be sharing my photos and memories of my time in Nepal.
Following orientation in Kathmandu, Badri accompanied me on the scariest bus ride of my life on the treacherous Prithvi Highway 200 km west to Pokhara, the country’s second-largest city, where I spent the remainder of the summer.
Hands for Help Nepal headquarters
It was one week ago today that disaster struck the beautiful country of Nepal. I spent a summer volunteering there with Hands for Help Nepal way back in 2003, a whole year before “Thefacebook” came to be in Mark Zuckerburg’s dorm room. Since my photos of that special time in my life have just been sitting in a weighty scrapbook on my living room shelf and have never seen the light of day on social media, I thought I’d start sharing a few of the digital files that I do have to shine a little light on the Nepal that I got to know and love. (Needless to say, the photo quality is not the best, as these images were taken on film – remember film? – and then converted.)
