Journeys trip leader Coco Rae has traveled with with students and adults, in groups and independently, in cities and deep in the wild. In advance of an upcoming trip to Mt. Kilimanjaro, she shares her reflections on the power of journeying by foot to deepen the impact of your surroundings.
We went to Dhulikhel and visited B.P. Shresta's hospital. He's doing a really cool thing there. The have lots of modern equipment including a MRI & CT machines. Also in Dhulikhel, I climbed the 1000 step Buddha. Yep, it was a thousand steps. My legs hurt today but it was absolutely worth it. We went back to Kathmandu yesterday via Baktapur. What a cool town. I have taken so many pictures that my camera batteries have died right there but luckily one of the other travelers is going to share.
