Annapurna: Memories in Sound

I heard this sound journal on NPR a few weeks ago. Its a beautiful account of one couple's trek through the Himalayas to Nepal. This journal is unique because there is a paucity of narration, the real focus is on the sounds they recorded throughout the trip. Monks chanting, prayer flags whipping in the wind, sherpa bells clanking- it was really a treat to listen to.

Follow this link and click on the headphones next to the Feb 3, 2007 show. There's a short segment before it, which you can fast-forward through if you like.
