The City Wanderer : Light on Nepal

【明報專訊】Having had an epiphany (頓悟) very early in her life, my friend Pink has roamed half the Earth, eventually settling in Nepal to run an orphanage (孤兒院). On 25 April 2015, what seemed to be an ordinary afternoon, Pink was enjoying some solitary time in a bookshop until she was thrown off her stool by an abrupt tremor (地震). Before long, the shelves rattled and the books cascaded down, not by the magic of the Harry Potter wand, but by a fatal catastrophe that would result in more than 5,000 deaths and counting. Flocks of crows fled for their lives (literally), and so did Pink.
