Nepal #1

Here is the first batch of photos from our 4 weeks in Nepal.  Yes we were their during the earthquake but thankfully quite far to the west and out of the main radius that was severely affected. It was a very terrifying feeling the witness firsthand the overwhelming power of mother nature.  With everything shaking, including the ground on which we stood, one had to simply surrender and wait for everything to calm down.  Nevertheless, we changed our itinerary and headed further west rather than east back to the capital city, Kathmandu.  We were very appreciative to spend 2 days in Kathmandu at the beginning of our trip before heading out to the Annapurna trek.  I will be posting 3 or 4 blogs about Nepal and another few highlighting our time in India.
