The story behind "Kids in Phakding, Nepal"

At the end of the first day of my trekking to the Nepali basecamp of Everest, I ended up in Phakding, a collection of dirty houses and low budget trekker accommodation, but with amazingly tasty food. Said before, the children over there know how to play without electricity or Internet. I watched these kids for a long time, while they tried to break each other’s hackey-sack record.
Once I showed them their own faces on the video camera and the screen of my photo camera, they starting posing, while wanting to know everything about this amazing technology, without forgetting their play.

Curiosity, imagination and education will make good people out of these good children, I am sure. They already have the first 2, they might need some help at the latter, so take out your hiking boots and visit this great place!
