Earthquake in Nepal

My thoughts are with Nepal as I dig up some photos of my 2013 research trip in the arid, dynamic Terai…

From Kathmandu to Nepalgunj, I catch a magical glimpse of Mount Everest from my small plane window. I dream of trekking there one day.

Here is Banke, the gateway to the flatlands of west Nepal:

My team and I drop into town to look for a place to eat lunch:

We finally find momos (dumplings) in a modest house restaurant in Banke! I love momos!

Our driver takes us to a nice fish place for lunch. I cross my fingers that they fry those things to a crispy crisp:

One afternoon, my team invites me to hike the suspension bridge to India:

At the end of the bridge, I find this woman with a Mona Lisa smile:
