On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

    @Science24, I'm handicapped by my tablet, so I can't see the picture. I thought google maps can show fairly clearly where there's forest and where there are buildings. I suppose the key is to be able to compare over time, the changes in landuse. In some areas, forests are making a bit of a come back in Nepal. Someone from WWF showed me how in the Terai of Nepal (the plains on the border with India), there's been an increase in land under forest in the past few years. I don't know if this is because young people in Nepal now don't want to be farmers, but increasinly land is going back to nature as the young men leave the villages to find work in the cities or out of the country.
