It was a heart wrenching visit for me, this trip to Kathmandu. 

Happy to be accompanied by Dany and the kids this time around, I nevertheless braces myself for a very different experience of post-Earthquake KTM. 

I planned to retrace my steps through the UNESCO world heritage sites of Kathmandu’s various Durbar squares and here is the visible difference.

The enormous task of repairing the 13th century buildings is being undertaken with the help of many countries and funders, which filled me with a sense of hope and gratitude. I felt an easier sense that the beauty of this wonderful dusty city would be restored.
