The devastation was as vast and as jaw dropping as the beauty that surrounded it. Not a single building survived last April and May’s devastating earthquakes. The traditional stone and slate houses that had once seemed so sturdy, a natural part of the landscape were no longer recognisable. Ancient villages returned to the earth and […]

Back in October we posted about what was happening or more realistically, what wasn’t happening due to the unofficial blockade imposed by India.
