on the road to somewhere

Hikers on the Everest Base Camp trek will come across a familiar figure after passing Namche Bazaar. Depending on donations from hikers, Pasang Tharkey Sherpa has been tirelessly helping to build the trails and roads in the Himalayas for over 50 years.

the Himalayas can be both magnificent and harsh at the same time. without roads, we will never get to see the awesome views and reach Everest. even with roads, the trails of the Himalayas are fraught with danger but at least we will get somewhere. No roads means nowhere.

each of us can be like Pasang Tharkey Sherpa, helping to build roads for people who are lost and need guidance in life to reach their base camps. #alwaysbelieve

'That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.

'I don't much care where -' said Alice.

'Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.

'- so long as I get SOMEWHERE,' Alice added as an explanation.

'Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, 'if you only walk long enough.'

- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
