Since September 2012 this has been a description of my annual (sort of) five weeks of teaching cardio to the first year medical students at the Patan Academy of Health Sciences in Nepal!

Nepal talk by PAHS med students
Today the PAHS students gave us a talk on Nepal. It was in return for the Health Trek Nepal team giving a talk last week on Canada. Today's talk was really excellent. I have been coming to Nepal for 12 years now and I still learned a lot from the presentation. The covered History of the Country, Religion and Politics, Extreme Sports, Flora and Fauna and the Health Care System.
One of my favourite parts was when they said that they have 0.03% of the world's landmass but they have 619 of the worlds species of Orchids! Gotta love that eh Don?
