    When flying over Nepal, it's easy to soar in your imagination and pretend you're tiny-a butterfly - and drifting above one of those three-dimensional topographical maps architects use, the circling contour lines replaced by the terraced rice paddies that surround each high ridge.
    Nepails a small country, and from the windows of our plane floating eastward at 12,000 feet, one can see clearly the brilliant white mirage of the high Himalayas thirty miles of the left window. Out the right window, the view is of three or four high terraced ridges giving sudden way to the plains of India beyond. 

    Three were few roads visible below, mosttransportation in Nepal being by foot along ancient trails that connect and bind the country together. There is also a network of dirt airstrips, which was fortunate for me, as I had no time for the two-and-a-half week trek to my destination. I was no a flight to the local airport. 

    当飞机飞过尼泊尔上空的时候,很容易让人浮想联翩,想象自己变得很渺小,像只蝴蝶一样在建筑师用的三维地形图上空飞舞。下面不是一圈圈的等高线,而是环绕在高高的山脊周围的水稻梯田。

    尼泊尔是一个很小的国家,当我们的飞机以一万两千英尺的高度向东飞行时,从左边的窗户可以很清楚地看到三十米开外高耸的喜马拉雅山上那明亮雪白的雾气。从右边的窗户向外望去,可以看到三四座阶梯状的山脊一闪而过,接着就看到了印度平原。

    下面大路很少见,在尼泊尔最主要的交通方式是步行,众多古老的小径把全国各地联结起来。那里有一个土跑道的航空港,这让我感到十分幸运,因为我没有时间花两个半星期去艰苦跋涉到达目的地。当时,我正在飞往当地机场的航班上。
