Waiting for Trilo and family
Katmandú, un espejo en el cielo
Aprofitem per recomanar-vos aquesta pel•lícula de directora de cinema Icíar Bollaín, que s’acaba d’estrenar sobre el treball i les dificultats d’una jove mestra catalana que un dia decideix implicar-se en l’educació dels infants del Nepal.
La pel·lícula és una bona manera de conèixer el treball que moltes persones realitzen de forma voluntària tant al Nepal, com en molts altres països, on la situació dels infants i les dones és molt precària i vulnerable, a causa de la situació d’extrema pobresa que pateix una gran part de la població.
Arrel de la pel·lícula s’han fet programes a diferents mitjans de comunicació, us destaquem No t'ho perdis del canal 33 on es parla del Nepal, amb l'emissió de les opinions de la Merche, laMarta i el Ramon.
Aprofitem també per recomanar-vos Destino España de TVE1 on un dels protagonistes és el nostre amic i soci d’Amics del Nepal Dik Bahadur.

Today we went to Bhaktapur for a visit. We found lots of old memorable things that belonged to different kings. There was a place called the palace of 55 windows which was built by Pratap Malla, the King of Nepal at that time. We took lots of pictures and we did shopping as well as we have enjoyed ourselves very much with our catalan friend

What is Bicycle Travel?
What is bicycle travel?
Bicycle travel isn't about bike.
It's about going slowly, exploring your country, and seeing it for the first time.
It's about doing something you didn't think you could do before.
It's about riding to some places you've never been.
It's about slowly climbing a mountain,...
...then flying down the other side.
It's about traveling with friends...
...and making new ones.
It's about roadside fruit stands...
...or finding the best meal you've ever had...
...and getting seconds.
It's about getting lost to find yourself.
But most of all, bicycle travel is about people...
...swapping stories with other travelers and laughing with the locals.
Because when you travel on a bike, you can't help but smile...
...and people can't help but smile back.
Travel by bike. Live more.

Volunteer Work Camps
There are work camps all over Europe, usually related to construction, maintenance and restoration work of historically or culturally important sites, or even archeological excavations. Work camps are usually short-term volunteer projects that are geared toward students and take place during the summer, usually between two and four weeks. Since participants work under local supervision, no previous experience is necessary, regardless of the type of work. In general, work camps do not pay their participants, but room and board is usually provided for the duration of the program. Participants usually work during the week and have the weekends off for leisure and cultural activities.
Work camp participants usually work with local groups and under local supervision, which makes them a great opportunity to learn about the local culture and way of life. Also, as the name camp suggests, accommodation and living arrangements are camp-like and very group oriented. Accommodation is usually dormitory style, and food may be served in large dining tents. The social aspect of work camps is perhaps its best-known quality, as locals often work with volunteers from dozens of different countries. Since work camp volunteers come from a variety of different countries, working knowledge of the local language is not necessary, although it is helpful.
Several organizations in the U.S. refer work camps in Europe, among them
SCI-International Voluntary Service, www.sci-ivs.org, and
Volunteers for Peace (VFP), www.vfp.org .
