When the author and her partner were offered the chance of spending five months teaching English in a remote village high in the Himalayas of Nepal they grabbed the life changing opportunity.
'A Beard In Nepal' is the story of the time they spent living in the small, isolated village of Salle, which is almost untouched by Western civilisation, and in manic, crowded, noisy Kathmandu.
A compulsive read, often humorous, we follow the couple from Liverpool as they struggle with the daily challenges of altitude sickness, severely restricted diet, and close encounters with wild tigers.The book describes their often comic attempts to teach English to a group of lively youngsters in a wooden hut in a forest, using blackboard and chalk, and without the benefit of electricity, water or toilet!
