markerstones for the millennium


Reflection on site 9

I spent November 1993 trekking in Nepal. An experience I will never forget: walking through the wonderful land, mountains on a scale and beauty difficult to comprehend. But it was not just the mountains that captivated me. Everywhere I was welcomed by people, most with little in the way of possessions but rich in their hospitality. On the last day I noticed in a little tea house at Lukla the quotation. It summed up my month in the Himalaya - to meet wonderful people and to see their magnificent mountains - I will never forget the memory of it all.
