#tbt to the Langtang Valley in 1992….

#tbt to the Langtang Valley in 1992. Our porters, soon to become friends and then family, Kancha (Membar), Minjou, and Dindou Tamang in Dhunche. Today, 23 years later, I pulled back into @holdernesstoday , the place that helped enable me to go to Nepal that first time and opened so many other doors, taught so many critical lessons. As I write, i have no idea of the fate of my three friends above. I know their village – the small hamlet of Gri in the lower Ganesh Himal – was likely destroyed by the April 25 #earthquake. It may be disappearing from the world headlines, but the needs of #Nepal have not dimished in two weeks; if anything, they’ve only grown and become more pressing as the monsoon nears and aid struggles to reach rural communities. Please help many of us to keep the #nepalearthquake in the news and to keep the money flowing to those working on the ground. The rebuild will take time, funds, and a whole lot of dedication and compassion.
