The World Effect in REAL time: Kathmandu, Nepal

Welcome to The World Effect in REAL time, posting from Kathmandu!  We have officially caught up with ourselves, so starting today we’ll actually be where our posts say we are.  We’re also officially off our original route and will be doing some serious backtracking.  Meggan and I are working on some really exciting projects in several countries.  We will be going more in depth on what we’re actually working on soon.  In the mean time, I will address a few questions that we’ve been getting lately.  The first is if we actually plan on going home.  Yes, we plan to be back in Colorado late May or early June.  The other is when we return, will our blog continue.  Yes, we plan on continuing our blog posts, this will be related to our new business, which will require us to continue to travel internationally.  We will be filling you in much more detail.  As to where we’ve been since the Philippines, we first went to Chiang Mai and Bangkok.  The political unrest there has seemed to escalate since we have left.  We were there during the first two outbreaks of violence and felt very safe.  Now we’re in Kathmandu, Nepal.  We’ve been working with some amazing people here.  We were here in October, I would have to say this is one of our favorite places to photograph, check out our previous posts here.  It seems political protest have been following us since Indonesia.  On May 1st, the Maoist will be having a major demonstration here, so we’ll be leaving the city per the recommendation of some of our new local friends for the weekend to enjoy some of the fresh Himalayan air.

  3. Hi, Meggan, thanks for leaving me a comment on my blog so I could find yours. I love finding fellow travelers! Enjoy Kathmandu – I was there many, many years ago and totally fell in love with it. Oh, and I also love SMA – what a lovely place to get married! :) Thanks again and safe travels!
