"World Stunned"

This was the Kathmandu Post's headline regarding yesterday's relatively peaceful polling. I'm not sure much of the world was watching honestly, but for those of you who were - it was indeed stunning and moving. Many in this country where 60% of the population is under 35 have never had the opportunity to vote. Many risked their lives to do so. The outcome will tell the tale of course and I promise a break from Nepal politics in this space. If you happened to see any of the online/print coverage, a friend of mine was covering the Maoists for the New York Times and took some fabulous shots.

The kids are missing Daddy who is understandably doing a fair bit of election observing/monitoring these days. This too shall pass!

More later when I'm awake ....
