Camp Situation / super hot today / slight aftershock early evening

Interesting to see how people arrange themselves with the given situation: cook together, talk, walk around and create play optionen for their children. The camp is situated at the main entrance of the Royal Palace which is now a museum. The tents are located at an area that beIongs to the police. Never in my…

Nice 2 min. line up / Chizang Magic:)

Close to my guest house yesterday afternoon. Life is going on.  If you ask me, he is not doing that for the first time. As a German  I can only say: impressive, fantastical and it works!  Hmmmmmmmmm I guess you have to have that special something.  😉         

“Hi”, “Hi” “So what are you actually doing right now??????” “Oh I have lice from them, this is why their hair is short.” / interesting concept: revised logic??? /pure panic in my face and instand scratching guaranteed

I walked around and catched a view in the tent. Just like that, just to say hi basically, which I also did. I almost didn’t wanted to disturb that close connection between the child and the young woman, a connection that worked without any words, very natural,organic almost and very relaxed but with very obvious…

You will not believe that / hipster-like  Monk 

I  see a lot of “new genaration monks” here with mobile devices, cool sneakers and fashionable arrangements (jackets, sneakers and bags, backpacks)  within their colour palette & designs, which are of limited nature as we know. But as we can see has some room for interpretation 🙂 Today I actually saw my FIRST TIME EVER…

Rebuild in Action / “Tomorrow?” “Yes.”

I leave the guest house at about 9 and come back 6:30 pm. Everyday I can see some progress which amazes me.  In this area they start fixing the stupa (Baudha). I also see many many more people here and much more shops are opening up.            

Some Key Facts / around 9.000 to 10.000 orphans

About 5000 schools are totally damaged. People are glad, that the earthquake didn’t happen on a regular school day. Just think about it. Schools are still closed….. As per goverment – so I have been told – they should be operating again already, but the issue is: they don’t exist anymore. The country has around…

Blog feedback / spam

On my way to work / Could get used to this service 

Every morning Raj is picking me up with his scooter and drops me at the tend. He is also picking me up. Very nice!!! Our journey takes us through the most narrow (!!!) ways and is about 30 min. long. I enjoy it a lot as I can see so many things on our little…

Breakfast / changed & maintained routine / 9

I found this little restaurant around the corner from where I stay. Super friendly and the food is good. It is called Cheflink. Wifi works perfectly. So I come here on a regular basis and Raju is always happy to see me. The other day I ordered a beer and I shared it with him….

Reality Overkill / One Gorkha please 

Today has been a very impactful day in many ways. Met a lot of very interesting people who do great things over here and who want to connect with me. I got introduced to more and more and more “needs”, new people and organizations. “Do you want to join? I am now driving to the…

Nepali Children / Mahila Tatha Organisation 

Today was a very special day. I met 10+ beautiful children and a great woman who runs the orphanage – her daughter is currently helping as well. Their house is kaputt as well and they are staying in a tend provided by the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation – Humanitarian Aid for Nepal earthquake. I…
