We at Himalayan Learning wish everyone an excellent 2006, or as it is in Nepal, an excellent 2062! This year will hopefully be fully of new ideas and news supporters. We’ve managed to set up a new set of projects in the Himalaya and we’re looking forward to getting them off the ground in 2006. The political situation in Nepal changed over Christmas, the democratic parties and the maoists together signed a demand for the restoration of multi-party democracy, and the maoist ceasefire has been ended because the government has not reciprocated. This has a lot of effect on our operations, as it can be difficult to get about with all the road blocks and so-on.
