Trekking tragedy shakes Nepal's faith in shoestring tourism
German tourist Tobias Pantel is determined to leave soon on a five-day hike in the Annapurna region, the very place where dozens were killed by a freak blizzard and avalanches in Nepal's most deadly trekking disaster.
As the search for dozens still missing on the snow-covered Himalayan slopes continues and relatives around the world wait in desperation for news of their loved ones, more foreigners are preparing to hit the trail.
"It was a natural accident that could take place anywhere," said Pantel as she sat outside a Kathmandu hotel, sipping beer and smoking with her husband. "I want to go to the area because it is very beautiful. I don't think the storm will come next time."
Every year, thousands of adventure tourists like Pantel set out on treks in the spectacular heights around Annapurna, the world's tenth-highest peak. But many have little or no previous experience on mountains, and many are young backpackers who are cavalier about the risks and tend not to hire trained guides.
I Love You Hands Down
Hands down, I love you.
It really is easy to love your kids. It requires little effort and poses no difficulty. I’ts an easy job. No trouble at all. It’s a cinch, hands down.
The love part should be. It’s just all the other guff that gets in the way.
So what does ‘hands down’ mean anyway and who started it?
Over at Wiktionary I found out that this colloquialism’s origin dates back to the mid-19th century. It was initially used in relation to horse racing and jockeys. Riders needed to keep the reigns tight during a race unless they were so far ahead they could afford to slacken off. He could drop his hands and loosen the reigns right near the end and still win.
So in the race of life, love your kids like there’s no tomorrow. Keep the reigns tight when the need arises and give them a little bit of slack now and then. You’ll come out a winner and so will your kids.
Victory will be yours, hands down!
If you are unfamiliar with the term, as I was before my departure, a hawkers center is sort of like a large, outdoor food court. But different. The food is all local and in Singapore that means predominately Chinese, Indian and Thai and incredibly inexpensive. Most food stalls are specialized - preparing just a few main dishes around a central theme.
My first foray into the hawker's center was an assault on my senses - really like everywhere in Chinatown you can not walk a few steps without smelling something delicious cooking. But the energy, the overwhelming choices and the heat all aided to my awe.
M.I.A. calls Justin Bieber's video 'an assault to my eyes and senses'
Image Credit: Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic.com; Robin Wong/PR Photos“I find the new Justin Bieber video more violent and more of an assault to my eyes and senses than what I’ve made,” says M.I.A. in the latest issue of U.K. weekly magazine NME. Opting not to explain her recent “Born Free” video, in which redheaded citizens of a desert nation are slaughtered, M.I.A. called Bieber’s clips “more offensive” than her controversial offering.
Istanbul: an assault on the senses
On one of our first few days in Istanbul, on one hot afternoon, we made our way through a very tightly packed street market. We bumped and shoved through narrow streets lined with endless vendor stalls. The ground was wet and dirty. I just wanted to make it out and have some space again. Being crammed into a large body of people feels suffocating.
At one point, D turned around and said “Can you smell that Turkish coffee?” It’s become such an instinct now that I didn’t even realize I was holding my nose (yeah it’s an odd defense mechanism against yucky market smells). I let it out and breathed in deeply. Like, really breathed in. Immediately, the intense aroma of freshly ground coffee beans rushed in. It smelled delicious.
As we continued our way through the market, I eagerly took in all the smells… the smells of sewage, cigarette smoke, and car fumes, but also the smells of spices that I can’t even identify, raw fish, and grilled meats. Everything was so individually distinct, and yet perfectly weaved together to create an intoxicating ambiance.
A Hotel With Character
As I think back on the hotels in which we’ve stayed over the years, I realize it’s not the fancy ones that stick out in my mind. It’s not the dumpy ones either—the truth is, I try really hard to forget those. No, the hotels I remember best are those with character. The places where the owner is engaging, or you feel like you are visiting someone’s home, or perhaps the town hot spot, where the locals gather to sing karaoke.
It was a really great morning. It's one of those days that will always stick out in my mind when I think back to Georgia's baby days. This really is the best season. Weather and life.
Accommodating = welcoming; helpful; willing to do favours
If you are part of a group that has accommodating members, you’re very fortunate. Accommodating describes those who are easy to get along with and willing to help you.
Accommodating is the adjective form of the verb accommodate, and it’s used to describe those who are cheerfully willing to make small adjustments to help you out. The waiter who is happy to serve the dressing on the side, give you extra cheese on the burger, and swap French fries for mashed potatoes, all because that's how you want it? Definitely accommodating.
An accommodating person will prefer harmony to conflict. In any conflict, this person will prefer to give in sometimes due to kindness or sometimes because he/she does not want any conflict. This personality will always play the role of a peacemaker. It appears like this person is “giving in” and allowing the other person to “take”. This attitude does not always solve matters, but an accommodating person will prefer this route because he/she feels the benefit is more.
An accommodating person is considered nice and lovable. He/she will understand other’s feelings and will go out of his/her way to make the other person feel good. An accommodating person is empathetic, understanding and very nurturing. This personality may have been developed from childhood, where parents teach children to always be good to others and then God will reward. Such a person will carry this trait into his/her adult life and apply it.
We sat around the table yesterday morning, Debbie preparing our delicious meal, while we discussed with her a few of the highlights, the journey, sharing our experiences with with our kind and accommodating host.
