|The Nepali Guides
Two brothers, Chandra Rai (left) and Arjun Rai (right), joined the group for the
Annapurna trek. Originally hired by Mary and Jude as porters, Chandra and Arjun quickly
became indispensable as translators, guides, and ambassadors of Nepali culture.
We all felt very lucky to know these strong, proud mountain companions.
