Mingmar was away at school in Kalikasthan when the first earthquake hit. Because landslides had wiped out the roads back to his village, it took him ten days to get back to his family. The only way in and out of the remote village is by foot, or by helicopter.
When the new earthquake hit yesterday I was up in the forest, collecting leaves for the cattle when the second earthquake happened. I was so scared. I ran from the forest with my friend until we got back home.
