So much destruction in villages all over Nepal that seeing houses flattened into rubbles now seems to be a common sight. And even in this devastating time, everywhere in different villages I find Nepali people affected by the quake greeting guests with such wide smiles and warmth. Without a home and with limited food, they still manage to offer us tea, sometimes share their meal, and even invite us to their new humble shelters for potatoes freshly plucked from the garden.

It’s a hard and critical time for Nepali’s. Most people currently in Nepal are trying whatever they can to help the ones affected by the quake, dreading the monsoon to come when relief will be more difficult and many will fly out of the country. But for now, this is home to me.
