Galavanting in the hills

Those who know me better know that I'm in Nepal. Yesterday with a group of five friends, we hired a jeep to head into the hills down from the Everest area. (It was more comfortable than the public shared jeep and only marginally more expensive).

Last night was spent in a typical little rustic lodge in the small market 'town' of Nele Bazaar (a village by any other standards). Today is market day, so people will be streaming in from miles around. We will be trekking out towards the village nearby where there are a couple of schools that we want to visit.

Rural Nepal in this area still hasn't changed much - except of course, the coming of mobile phones and internet reception!

Hang in here if you're interested in following our adventures in this poor and very undevelooed corner of the Himalayas!

    Do you think the arrival of mobile phones will make a difference eventually?

    The coming of mobile phones and internet connection will bring the masts and a lot of billboards with the new devices from Samsung, Huawei etc.
