The sequel to “Five Weeks in Nepal” will be shown on Tuesday, September 19 at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre at 7:00 pm

After our arrival back from Nepal in April this year, I have been working hard on our follow-up documentary of “Five weeks in Nepal”. This documentary will feature the rebuilding efforts and more since the earthquake in 2015. It will be shown on Tuesday September 19 at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre in Duncan, BC.  Details on tickets to follow soon. 
When we were in Nepal two years ago and witnessed the devastating damage of the earthquake in Khumjung I promised the school children that I would come back with soccer gear for their school. Before we embarked on our second trip to Nepal I contacted the Vancouver Whitecaps in Vancouver and asked if they would be willing to donate some soccer balls and other soccer items to take to the village of Khumjung.  Much to my delight their response was very positive and generous, so with my trusted guide Bibi and porter Kumar we traveled to Khumjung with a large duffel bag full of soccer gear.
