Inspired by Nepal, a Langtang Ago
BY BRIAN SCOTT PETERSON
Prior to establishing himself in Tokyo over a decade ago, Brian Scott Peterson made a trip half way around the world to, in his words "the mystifyingly scenic", country of Nepal. In a wonderlust quest for "adventure of most epic proportions", Peterson set off from age-old city Kathmandu, long-hauling across treacherous trail to the Himalayan kingdoms highest peaks, to the remote mountainous village of Langtang, a journey against all others after would be measured.
Heartbroken to see the recent devastation and disastrous loss of the place that forever changed his life, he offers this emotional tale of his sojourn there, simply as a starting point.
No stranger to disaster response, Peterson hopes to eventually repeat in Nepal his successful volunteer effort from Japan, the family photo rebuilding project Photohoku.
Finally he asks, "How can the tried and true creativity in the greater PechaKucha community rally to share stories and support for Nepal?"
