Recovery is Slow, but Life Goes on

Nepal had a massive earthquake in the year of 2015. The Kathmandu Valley was one of the hardest hit areas, with the shock waves bringing homes and temples crashing to the ground. Now it has been two years since the disaster, but unfortunately life in the Kathmandu Valley is far from being normal. Tourism, a key money-earner for Nepal, has failed to revive, causing the government to reduce funds for reconstructions of homes and ancient temples. Many of the locals, who are still living in temporary accommodation, have to rebuild their homes using simple tools without any government help. Despite hardships, life goes on. Children have been back to school, culture-rich wedding are held in local communities, and religious rituals are taken place at the base of temple ruins etc.
