October 10, 2010 - Beyond Kathmandu

October 10, 2010Namaste,The monsoon rains are coming to an end…which means it is hot, humid and dusty. Despite the beauty of the Annapurna range of the Himalayan Mountains looming in the distance, Nepal is a horribly filthy place. There is trash everywhere and everything is coated with a layer of dust. The air smells of kerosene, diesel and wood fires. Nepalis take great delight in spitting, so you have to watch where you step and be ready to jump out of the way of someone starts hacking up…See More

October 3, 2010 - Beyond Kathmandu

Good Morning (at least on this side of the world)!I am settling into my life over here…slowly staying awake a little bit longer each evening and sleeping a little bit longer each morning. The weather continues to be hot and muggy…with huge deluges of rain. When the storms come, we batten down the hatches and place containers everywhere to catch as much run off as possible from the roof. Everywhere I walk I hear ‘Sarah Didi ayo’ (didi is a kinship term for older sister or term of respect…Sarah…See More

September 26, 2010 - from Beyond Kathmandu

September 26, 2010Namaste,I have traveled safely to the other side of the world and am settling in to my room on top of Bel’s home. It’s a week since I left and a world away. The traveling part went smoothly with all flights on time. It’s the sitting on a plane for a grand total of 24 hours that gets me. I’m in the process of shifting my internal time clock twelve hours ahead. I crash early in the evening and then am up in the middle of the night. They say for one hour of time change, it takes…See More

From Nepal back to Salt Lake City

Greetings from Salt Lake City!I have traveled safely back to this side of the world…and am enjoying having electricity, running water and a steady supply of hot water. My main struggle now is to adjust back to this time zone. I crash early and find myself awake in the wee hours of the morning.Before leaving Kathmandu, Bel, Bishnu and I did a major whirlwind exploration of the valley. Last Sunday, we headed south and visited Dakshinkali and Pharping. Sangita’s friend Soni joined us as we visited…See More

Farewell Nepal!

Greetings from Kathmandu!Which is both a greeting of relief and one of sadness. The relief comes from knowing I have safely made it back to the Kathmandu valley…which is not always guaranteed based on the political climate, road blocks, protests or accidents along the way. The sadness comes from having to leave Pokhara and all of the people who I hold dear. Each day, I ventured forth to one of the households who Indigenous Lenses supports to say good-bye. And I received words of blessings,…See More
