Oct 17 Willis Rudy - My Life in Nepal
Willis is a long standing RTW member who recently published a book entitled "My Life in Nepal – 1958 – 1961". He shared many stories and photos with us, and explained the challenges faced in travelling to remote destinations crossing many rugged mountains. Notwithstanding, he marvelled at the beautiful scenic views as well as the positive experiences and achievements he enjoyed while helping the people of Nepal.

Flash forward. In 1959 I met Sir Edmund Hillary at Shanta Bhawan. In 2010, we awarded a life time achievement award to Zeke O’Connor, Director of the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation of Canada. Zeke and Sir Edmund worked closely together on school and Hospital projects for the Sherpa people in the Lolo Khumba region of Nepal
