India en 2 semanas: Rajastán y Nepal. Itinerario

posted on January 27th 2018 in Travel with 0 Comments

A menos de dos meses de mi partida a la India, este es el itinerario para recorrer el Norte de este país y parte de su vecino Nepal. Ya que solo tenemos dos semanas y mucho que ver, el viaje está planificado para movernos en tren, rickshaws y taxis.

Tenemos pensado entrar a Nepal por tierra desde Varanasi (24 horas de viaje ni más ni menos, seguro que va a ser una aventura). El visado para India hay que tramitarlo con antelación, pero existe la e-visa lo que facilita el proceso, pudiendo hacer la solicitud online y recibiendo la confirmación de visado en menos de 24 horas.

It’s that time of the year again, in which I can’t help it but plan another intercontinental trip. After a few adventures in Africa and Central America I’ve decided to go East this time to a couple of countries I’ve always wished to visit: India and Nepal.

I will be doing this trip in spring, just after the famous Holi Festival in India (that one where everybody throws colour powder to each other), and the perfect time in terms of weather, as it´s not meant to be rainy season yet and it should not be too hot in India nor too cold in Nepal.

Voy a hacer este viaje en primavera, justo después del famoso Festival Holi de India (ese en el que la gente se lanza polvo de colores), y en teoría es el momento ideal del año ya que no es aún época de lluvias o monzones y no será ni extremadamente caluroso en India ni excesivamente frío en Nepal.

Photographer Lynn Johnson takes you to rural India, where women volunteers save lives.

They are not doctors. They are not nurses. They are illiterate women from India’s Untouchable castes. Yet as trained health workers, they are delivering babies, curing disease, and saving lives -including their own.

A toxic tragedy in Bhopal, by Alex Masi

posted on October 18th 2012 in Photography & Social with 0 Comments

Bhopal Second Disaster provides a disturbing yet tender portrait of people living in the shadow of one of the worst industrial accidents ever happened: a gas leak at a Union Carbide pesticide factory in Bhopal, India in 1984. Almost 30 years later, approximately 30,000 people live in the area surrounding the abandoned plant and find themselves and their children suffering from severe neurological disorders produced by years of chemical contamination of the soil and water.
