So today we woke to the horrific and sad news of the Earthquake in Nepal. Already the death toll is at 758 people and it is thought to be rising rapidly. A number of historic buildings have been destroyed including the Dharahara Tower, a royal palace and many other world heritage sites.
We are waiting to find out whether we will be able to fly there in 5 days time but for now all we know is it hit roughly 5km from the centre of Kathmandu it is the worst earthquake to hit Nepal in over 80 years.
If possible we will still travel to Nepal to offer our help, although many main roads have been torn apart and all flights for now have been cancelled.
