Photos and Anecdotes of the Accidental Journalist 100 Days After The Nepal Earthquake

P.S. Brace yourself for selfies. Do not scroll down if you don’t like selfies. Just don’t.

  1. “I’m a journalist?” — 50 hours after earthquake on Monday, April 27. I somehow managed to talk myself past two Nepal Army officers who had cordoned off the Kathmandu Durbar Square. I couldn’t even rationalize it to myself whether I was doing the right thing, but I knew I had to see it. I just had to. This was historic. This was “the” earthquake that we’ve always feared in Nepal for our generation, and now that it had struck, I wanted to see it for myself. Not second hand. Not through the news. But me. One on one. I still had no idea what I was going to do to help, but I knew I had to see the problem first to figure out what was going on. So I did. The 2 key things I learned that day: 1) The vast majority of Kathmandu is unaffected by the earthquake. 2) There is no shortage of human capital (Army, Police, volunteers, locals, foreign teams) for search and rescue operations in Kathmandu.
