My plan to only write positive things has been derailed...by the murder of journalist Uma Singh. (more on this later)
Now I believe my job is to write a balanced blog about the many positive aspects of Nepal while reporting the troubling current state.
Because Nepal is both, really. A stunningly beautiful place, rich in culture and history yet continually challenged by a government in transition and a weakening of security and the rule of law.
I pray that she does not become a failed state.
There are too many wonderful people who would suffer and many of them I call friend.
