Nepal - Once is Not Enough

eBook (PDF), 48 Pages
(1 Ratings)
Price: $1.58
A short book something between a travel guide and some funny recollections of one of the most stunning places in the world. I'd just like to point out that the Nepal Tourist Board subsequently ripped off MY title, not the other way about. Useful for volunteers and travellers in general.

    These reviews were written a while ago. Firstly by Philip Challinor, then by the Ben Lomond Free Press Considerably More Than Seven Colours Some years ago, the excellent Michael Greenwell spent some time working in Nepal. When he got back he wrote a sort of alphabetical Rougher Guide for future volunteers, with notes on the country's customs, attractions, food, dung, landscapes, people, politics and pests - as might be expected, the World Bank seems recently to have displaced the leech from champion's place in the last category. Michael has now put these notes together with some other reminiscences, including a risky bit of noise nuisance (Celtic were playing on the other side of the globe) and an unnerving interview with a young guerrilla fighter which culminated in the one question a truly professional journalist would never, ever have asked. The compilation is profusely illustrated with photographs ranging from the snappy to the sublime, and Michael is offering the whole... More > forty-eight pages for download from his weblog. He ought to be charging for it, but he isn't; and even if you have no particular interest in Nepal, I would advise you to give it a look, because it makes very good reading indeed. The title of this post refers to the line I found the funniest, and were I Michael's editor it would be a contender for title of the book. -------------------------------------------------------------- Nepal-Michael Greenwell Michael’s Blog is always an interesting and thought provoking read. In 2003 Michael worked for a while as a volunteer in Nepal and he has written a short book about his experiences there. Most of it is in an A-Z form and gives an insight into life in the Himalayas. For instance as dock leaves grow amongst nettles, so in Nepal cannabis grows amongst the maize and it is wild and plentiful. You also get free popcorn in the bars there. He tells of taxi drivers who will inform you that the hotel of your choice has burned down so that he can get commission from another hotel owner. In the latter part of the book Michael tells of someone asking him to take some (ahem!) jewelery through customs. The whole thing is illustrated with Michael’s own photos. Definitely worth the two minutes or so it takes to download on PDF.< Less
