Update: June 14th, 2015
The 3 of us, my mother, my son and myself immediately start the next day.
We inspect the area around Kathmandu and look at all the damage in places, the earthquakes have taken a toll. The clinic in front of my mom’s apartment is in rubble. The heart of Kathmandu has sustained a lot of damage and ofcourse sadly taken many lives.
We pack emergency evacuation bags and tent and its
ready to go any minute as we fear more aftershocks as they continue.
We walk almost everywhere, sometimes taking a taxi. Along the way we see a lot of damage! First order of business is to figure out the phone connections and get the technical side of things working so I can update our donors. It is not an easy task as there are many loopholes and lot of hurdles
Trying Ncell Connect USB Dongle, stuck with it since I bought it to be able to effectively post updates.
I am optimistic and staying positive all will work out soon as one gentleman has decided to help from Ncell! The toughest part of the journey went very smooth but this part is problematic. Quite a learning process!
Please bear with me as I try to do my best to keep you all posted from here between technical difficulties,load-shedding and continuing aftershocks in Nepal. I have no time to edit, just get on my laptop when and if I can type as fast as I can, post photo’s and video’s when I can and get out immediately. I apologize for the ramblings, redandency and grammatical errors as that is the last thing on my mind as I try my best to see if I can even keep you all updated with all the challenges I am facing. I will do my best!
Having major issues with email and internet connection on again, off again. I expected this but never to this extent in Kathmandu.
