Today's podcast is a report on my fieldwork experience in Nepal. More details are provided in the blogs below, but this audio post may be accessible for some. The podcast covers the following three topics:

Part 1 - I discuss the administration of our photograph survey in Nepal and some of he challenges and adjustments made in doing that

Part 2 - I talk about trekking in the Khumbu (Mt. Everest) region of Nepal, where about half of the interviews took place

Part 3 - There is a short soundseeing clip from the Durba (Palace) Square of Patan, the former city-state on the south bank of the river, across from Kathmandu

I found a fast internet connection at the Kathmandu Airport for US$5/hour -- so this is going up as I leave the country.

FYI - You can see all the photos from my trip to Nepal at:
