Phuntsholing on the Mon


A small vanity reference, but Trib on Monday: Population expansion in Western Pennsylvania hinges on immigrants.Immigration is low in Pittsburgh for sure, but most certainly not nonexistent. A recurring question, but who are the new Pittsburghers? Here is one answer:

Leading Countries of Birth - Persons Obtaining Legal Permanent Residence in the Pittsburgh MSA - Fiscal Year 2012 (Source: USCIS)

India 294
Bhutan 287
China 251
Nepal 128
Canada 80
Vietnam 69
Philippines 65
Korea, South 53
Russia 52
Ukraine 52
United Kingdom 51
Mexico 47
Burma 44
Pakistan 44
Uzbekistan 43


Yes, Europe extends to the Urals and the only European countries in the top 10 are Russia and Ukraine. But anywhere in Western or even Central Europe? Only the UK is in the top 15 (at#11) and Mexico, the only Latin American nation in the top 15 is at #12.  Note the increase in Bhutanese immigration is interesting.  Something that has been noticed here in Pittsburgh over the last couple of years. But really it is not a Pittsburgh phenomenon as much as a Cleveburgh phenonomenon.  Cleveland noted the new arrivals in 2008. In Akron they have been talking about their new neighbors from Bhutan since at least 2010. The AP noted the Bhutanese population in Pittsburgh back in 2008.  If you look at the recent trends in the Bhutanese population across the greater region you will see it is more than a Pittsburgh story.  No wonder the news today is of a Bhutanese cricket team being formed up in Erie. The Pittsburgh numbers below might be larger, but Akron and Erie are much smaller regions.

Trekking in Nepal…Family Adventure style
The towering Himalayas are, to many travellers’ minds, the chief reason for visiting Nepal. The country tumbles steeply down from the 800km stretch of the Himalayan battlements that forms its northern border, and can claim no fewer than eight of the world’s ten highest peaks – including, of course, Everest, the highest of them all. The mountains are more than just physically astonishing, however. The cultures of highland-dwelling Nepalese peoples are rich and fascinating, and the relaxed, companionable spirit of trekking life is an attraction in itself. The Himalayas have long exerted a powerful spiritual pull, too. In Hindu mythology, the mountains are where gods go to contemplate, while the Sherpas and other mountain peoples hold certain peaks to be the very embodiment of deities.
Most visitors to mountain areas stick to a few well-established trekking routes. They have good reasons for doing so: the classic trails of the Everest region with its famous trails like Everest Base camp trek and the 3 high passes are both mind blowing ventures and highly popular in the world. And Annapurna regions are so popular because they offer close-up views of the very highest peaks; this includes Annapurna 1 & 2, fishtail peak and Ganesh Himal trek. Famous treks like the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, Annapurna Base camp trek & the Annapurna Circuit trek are some of the most famous on earth. Dramatic scenery and fascinating local cultures are most known in this area. Lodges on the main trails – some as sophisticated as ski chalets, these days – make it possible to go without carrying a lot of gear or learning Nepali, and without spending too much money, either. While trekking, you’ll likely eat and sleep for $20–30 a day. For those who put a high priority on getting away from it all, there are plenty of less-developed routes, of course, and simply going out of season or taking a side-route off the main trail makes a huge difference.
The Helambu and Langtang regions are less striking but conveniently close to Kathmandu, attracting a little fewer than ten percent of trekkers. The Langtang valley trek & the Ganja-La pass are known trails in this area. This leaves vast areas of eastern and far western Nepal relatively untrodden by visitors. To hike in these areas you’ll need either to get set for camping and carry your own supplies, and live like a local, or pay to join an organized trek with tents and accept the compromises that go along with that.
With a good operator, you can anywhere in the wild. A Great Himalayan Trail now runs the length of highland Nepal – though it will be for some time, if ever, before such a route will be serviced by lodges.
Treks in remote far eastern and far western Nepal are mostly restricted to two kinds of globe trotters, both adventurous in their own way. The majority come on organized camping treks with agencies – in fact, this is obligatory for those areas that require a permit. The minority are independent trekkers prepared either to carry tents and food or negotiate with porters, or to seek food and lodging in local homes and basic lodges. Some great camping outdoors include the Manaslu circuit Trek, Upper Mustang trek the Dhaulagiri circuit, Rara lake trek and the great Kangchenjunga trek, both north and south.
