The stranger thing was when I saw monkey out of hotel window in Kathmandu.
One more beautiful sunrise in Nepal.
I could have stared at that view for days, but it was time to leave Annapurna Conservation Area.
Part of Annapurna range, this mountain is called Fishtail in English, the elevation of its peak is 6.99km (23k feet). It is revered by the local population as particularly sacred to the god Shiva, and hence is off limits to climbing and therefore no one has ever set foot on the actual summit.
I went to see interview with Al Gore today at Ryerson University. Obviously he spoke a lot about the need to protect the environment. This image of Bagmati River really sums up the state of environment in Kathmandu, the water is undrinkable, the air is practically unbreathable, and the dirt/dust is everywhere. In North America and Europe, we are so fortunate to have the environment where we are able to take deep breath in the street and drink tap water.
