When I arrived to the refugee camp I saw thousands of bamboo huts in the vally and on the mountainside. The refugee camp housed about 50.000 people with different religious background.

It took me some time to get use to the digital photography but now I`m confident with the technology, to my needs! But one thing can`t satisfy me.
