Written after my visit to my birthplace Phidim
KATHMANDU, Nepal -- A year ago, I was anticipating my maiden trip to the United States thanks to the Alfred Friendly Press Fellowships, a Washington, D.C.-based organization that sponsors foreign journalists to work for six months at U.S. newspapers. I was to join the Post-Gazette.
Six months after returning home from Pittsburgh, I visited my birthplace in the small village of Phidim in the eastern hills of Nepal.
