Nepalese Earthquake

I have been really saddened to hear about the devastating earthquake in Nepal yesterday.  I spent a month travelling around the country in 1992 with my friend Emma Quay.  We sketched as much as we could; me trying to capture the buildings and street life and Emma expertly drawing the people.  I have such fond memories of the beautiful landscape, architecture and welcoming nature of the people, which makes the news reports even more terrible.

I wonder how many of the fragile buildings I drew and photographed are still standing?
