Stay Strong Nepal

Our friend Krishna and his family are safe in Kathmandu!


Erica and I visited Nepal in the spring of 2002.  Nepal had been on my bucket list for decades because of a childhood spent reading, watching and imagining great adventures in those spectacular mountain landscapes.
We were going to trek to the Khumbu glacier to see Pumori and Mount Everest, check out the ancient UNESCO world heritage sites around the Kathmandu Valley, visit Chitwan and Sagarmatha National Parks and of course capture photographs of the entire trip. With almost 100 rolls of (color and black and white) 36 exposure film we would each have enough to document the journey from our own perspective.
Many climbers, trekkers and visitors will tell you after they visit Nepal, how warm and generous the people are. That is no tall tale. Wherever we went we felt safe, welcome and were always greeted with “Namaste” and a smile.
Although Nepal is best known for its beautiful mountains it’s her hardworking and resilient people that are the real gem of the country.
Thank you for your tremendous outpouring of thoughts and prayers,
Erica, Jake & James
Stay Strong Nepal!
