'A Beard In Nepal 2. Return to the Village' is the story of Fiona and Tod's second visit to the village of Salle, high in the Himalayas of Nepal. They returned to take presents and supplies to the villagers.
The story of their first visit to the village is told in the bestselling 'A Beard In Nepal'.
This second book is again full of humour as the couple from Liverpool trek with Kalyani (the village school headmistress) to a remote, hidden valley where her new husband's family live, braving again those incredibly high, dangerous roads through the mountains.
'A Beard in Nepal 2' gives us more detail about the villagers lives, and the lives of the wonderful, happy village children, who live so very differently from their Western counterparts.
It also touches on the downside of life in Nepal today; the corruption, the destruction of the forests, lack of electricity, and lack of clean water.
'A Beard In Nepal 2' tells us about Fiona and Tod's encounter with black, poisonous spiders; how they avoided having to eat a cockerel; a water buffalo that snores so loudly it has to sleep in its own specially built shelter; and once again the nightmare of travelling in a local bus through the remote tracks in the high Himalayas.
The book also looks at developments in Kathmandu, such as the 'removal' of 10,000 street dogs in the last few months.
'A Beard In Nepal 3' is now published.
All of the 'Beard in Nepal' books are Amazon bestsellers and are available in paperback or eBook.
