  1. The traditional costumes are really gorgeous -- as so many of the various lands' traditional costumes are. Wearing one would make me feel beautiful.

    1. The sherpas have been in Norway every summer the last 11 years and made over 100 staircases all over the country. In Nepal, which is one of the world's poorest countries what they earn making staircases in Norway this corresponds to over 100 annual salaries.The work in Norway has led to an increase in prosperity and a better life for the inhabitants of Khunde since everyone in the village has taken part in the increase in prosperity. They don't keep the income themselves it goes to the hole village. This have been such a good thing for Nepal that we now see sherpas all over Europe doing the same.
