After a personal and professional life that led him across three continents from Germany to Albert Schweitzers hospital in Africa, to medical training at the Mayo Clinic in the USA, Hans was on the verge of retirement from a satisfying but demanding career in radiology. He knew that he needed a new challenge to keep him as motivated and vibrant as his professional life had carried him. Being generally physically fit and always eager for adventure, the idea of mountain hiking began to pique his interest. Armed with his camera and renewed energy from a fitness program tailored for a near 60-year-old, Hans set off for Mt. Kilimanjaro, and a new love was born. Ten years later he aimed his feet and lens toward Nepal, and through his adventures there, developed a desire to plan his affairs and give something of himself to the people of this poor and complex country.
