Today on the 25th of April 2015 Nepal has been hit by an strong earthquake with a magnitude of 7.5. Coincidentally I was there 48 hours ago and I can't avoid thinking about the chaotic situation in Kathmandu or having a though for the friendly people I have met during my visit.
Nepal is not a place that will leave visitors indifferent. It's very mountainous, quite poor and chaotic, and it is inhabited by people who seem to have a natural gift for smiling and caring, even for short-staying visitors like me. Nepal has shown me the art of taking life one step after another, because nothing is really guaranteed in this place.
I have a particular thought for the Nepali who have lost a friend or a family member and I am sad thinking about the destruction of numerous historical buildings and temples. I wish all the best to the people of Nepal to face this devastating event and take care of their special country.
