This is a very personal, if brief story. I first went to Nepal in 1988 and fell in love with the people and the country. When I left I promised myself that I would be back soon. In the end I didn't get back to Kathmandu until earlier in 2015. I was only there for a few days but walked all around, and spent early mornings in and around Durbar Square. It was only a few weeks before the devastating earthquake.
