Twenty minutes into the journey they pulled over on the side of the road and began yelling out across the valley in Nepali words to the effect “Special vet in town, bring your dog and we make him better”. Ten minutes later people began to emerge through the fog with their dogs. These kids were completely fascinated to see me standing there with a camera, and even more intrigued when I showed them the pictures on the back display. This picture became the advertising campaign for VBB. The side story to this moment was that about one hour after taking the picture I became extremely ill with dysentery. To be expected when doing assignments in developing countries.
