Traveling in Nepal While Local: Money Talks, Nepalis Walk

Reading Time: 7 minutes Starting in the mid-nineties, I had the opportunity to travel to Nepal as well as live and work in the country briefly. I also traveled and trekked a great deal during that period. Doing so, I learned a great deal about my country and people. As amazing as some of those experiences were, especially the treks, discoveries I made about some of our systems left me wondering if Nepalis are second class citizens in their own country. . . . → Read More: Traveling in Nepal While Local: Money Talks, Nepalis Walk

On The Road…Not Taken…Before…In Nepal

Reading Time: 11 minutes
