HOMEWORK(标蓝处存疑)

“And how old are you? 15?”

“Yeah, 15 years old.”

“Well, it looks very well organized which is down to you, I’m sure.”

“Yeah.”

“Hello, Namaste.”

Just a teenager, Purushotam is in charge here, made manager of the camp because he can speak English, a helpful skill when faced with inquisitive Prince Harry.

“Hi, hi.”

“I’ll take my shoes off.”

“Ok.”

“Ok, we can. No, it's okay. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's very easy to do. And you're all living here for the whole of the last year? And how much longer do you think you'll have to live here before you can...”

Around 260 people live in the camp in Bhaktapur of the outskirts of Kathmandu. A quarter of them are children with the 80 families sharing just 55 tents. It’s his first visit to Nepal, yet obviously he feels a real connection with these people.

“It’s nice to finally have the chance to come to Nepal and meet the families, and people, and the place from which the Gurkhas have come from, so.... And I’m sorry that you have to live in here. But you are all alive, you are all alive, you know. I know the earthquake hit and you now live here, but in some way you are lucky that you are all alive and no one lost their lives.”

It’s when you see the dozens of families still living under canvas you realize just how much recovery work still needs to be done. Prince Harry’s trip does draw the attention to the conditions here, but it is likely that the families are going to be living in these tents for at least another year to come.

A ceremony of luck had greeted him earlier in the days. He saw another side of the devastation -- Patan Durbar Square, an iconic site in Kathmandu where historic temples and ancient royal palace were badly damaged. Harry wants to draw attention to the restoration works still needed and not his own woodwork skills.

“I can’t do it. Not many people can. I am showing how hard it is to do this - wow.”

Bringing tourists back here is also part of what this trip is about, even if he turned into an attraction himself.

“Tourism is one thing X. You’ve been looking after.”

“Very well.”

“Of course you are.”

Many would argue these gentle people have been let down by their politicians with ongoing delays of the earthquake recovery plans. For the families still potentially years away from getting life back to normal, attention from this prince has been more than welcome.
