Traveling to Dolakha
Sonia Narang, reporting on maternal health and global development issues in Nepal for The World, had quite an experience traveling to the Dolakha district, 175 km outside Kathmandu.
My fixer just got us through 5 security checkpoints along the bumpy road to Dolakha, Nepal. Heading there to report on #maternalhealth.— Sonia Narang (@sonianarang)
Our vehicle can’t pass through, a car is stuck in the road. I start talking to villagers & a young 1st time mom invites me to her house.— Sonia Narang (@sonianarang)
While waiting for road to clear, took opportunity to interview 25-yr-old Masali, the 1st in her family to give birth in a health facility.— Sonia Narang (@sonianarang)
20 kilometers left until I reach Charikot, final destination for today. Road is covered in thick fog now.— Sonia Narang (@sonianarang)
