As you know, I have been running this serialisation of my diary from 1981 since February. There was no way that I could have foreseen that my daily adventures would coincide with the terrible disaster that has overtaken Nepal this last week.
My mind has been torn. Should I discontinue publishing this diary as a sign of respect or carry on with what could be regarded as a frivolous traveller’s story?
Advice I’ve received has suggested that I should carry on and I have decided to do so. Hopefully I can convey some of the spirit of the Nepalese people so the world can see what was and could be again.
I know that all of our thoughts and prayers go out to those who are suffering during these traumatic times.
