Some Sad News From Nepal

My friends I just came back from my morning swim. In the locker room was a man married to a woman from Nepal. He told us that the death toll in the urban areas has gone above 3,700. They have no idea of how many people have died in the rural areas. Survivors are without clean water and other sanitary things. Outbreaks of diseases like cholera are now possible. This is not good! The only good news was that all members of this man’s family there in Nepal had survived.

About tatamkuluafrica

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
