On the Path by LindelCaine On the Path by LindelCaine
Climbing a mountain path, her basket on her back, a village girl goes to cut grass near the forest, to feed her family's buffalo. Rising high above her and the surrounding mountains, stands the sacred mountain, Machapuchare.

The views in the Annapurna Himalayas are often breathtaking and the people of mountain villages get on with their daily life and labour,- up and down the winding paths they've built by hand, over the centuries,- within this amazing yet challenging environment.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Simon.:rose:
It was a special moment and you are right about the beauty and the danger of life amidst the Himalayas. However, with the similar care you'd take in high mountains anywhere, you can experience an amazing time here. ... "in awe"... that's describes the feeling of being there.

I too would like to travel to Peru, however, Nepal is wonderful, though life, for the village people is hard. It is a country rich in natural beauty and culture. Someday, I hope your wish comes true.:rose:
