So words are fine, but they say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so here are some photographs from my trip out in the field. Thanks much to everyone at dZi Foundation (http://www.dzifoundation.org/) that made it all possible! And to everyone who welcomed me into their homes and to Jitna Dai who was my very attentive guide throughout. Many of you may have heard of Solukhumbu as in the area of Nepal in which Sagarmatha, better known to us as Mount Everest, is located. However, the southern part of Solukhumbu is a hilly region with quite temperate climates and decent farmland for those who can navigate terracing.
These are NGO Partners who came for a training which I co-led in Sotang. It took Jitna (standing behind these chairs) and I two half days (with a porter to help us with our training supplies) to walk from the airstrip to Sotang.
The morning when we reached our highest elevation in Solukhumbu (I can’t remember now what it was). I was feeling a little bit sick, so Jitna and I paid someone else to help me carry my backpack so that we could make it to our next destination.
