233 / Kathmandu & Pokhara

Heartbreaking to see the photos from Nepal,
& realising the plight of the people there

in Bhaktapur many of the old buildings were wrecked 
including in the main square

these are from my stay in 2012

no news yet about the beautiful Shechen monastery
which is next to where I stayed in Boudhanath, I think theres been 
some damage to the big stupa there

& while people I know in Pokhara are safe,
there are grave fears for the villages, 
the death toll continues to rise,
everyone in Nepal will be affected for years to come
