I went to a #war zone today….

I went to a #war zone today. Perhaps not a “real” one in terms of bombs going off and people fighting one another. But, it is a war zone nonetheless. #Bhaktapur, one of my favorite places in the world, took the brunt of destruction in the #NepalQuake. A #medieval city of narrow, brick street winding through ancient #Newar homes with intricate woodwork, huge parts of Bhaktapur were leveled in the #earthquake. This neighborhood, just a stone’s throw from famed #Dattatreya Square and the Peacock Window (which fortunately survived) used to have dozens of 4-story homes. It’s now just piles of shattered brick and splintered timber. A war zone indeed, and one in which recovery is a long and difficult road. #HelpCarryTheLoad #nepaliloveyou #liveyouradventure #dattatreyatemple #everydaynepal #everydayasia #nepalphotoproject #buildbackbetter
