Our first website was very successful for what it was : visitors were able to stream several shorts as well as decent length extracts from the full-length productions. It took patience while
They downloaded onto the visitor devices, but I'm pleased to say people persevered and were rewarded!
However time and technology passed into a different formula and the site is no more
I am looking for ways to create a new website from which visitors will be able to stream the entire catalogue of audio/visual content which Triple U wholly owns. I have full confidence the site will eventually appear. The 20 year history of Triple U Productions is one of having an idea and waiting till the technology arrives to make it an economically viable project

For Vegans and Vegetarians holidays abroad can sometimes be difficult (unless you go self-catering)
For example, if you visit somewhere like France (ha ha ha, Veggies - only joking) in most restaurants you will be lucky to find even one solitary item suitable for vegetarians on the menu, likely a pasta dish - and even then you have to watch out they haven't put something nasty in the sauce .
In Nepal however in every restaurant you go to over 70% of the menu will be suitable for what the airlines refer to as "lacto-ovarian vegetarians" and over 45% works for your actual vegan!
The national dish in Nepal is the ubiquitous Dahl Bat which consists of impeccably prepared rice, lentil soup, a vegetable curry and usually some yoghurt and a salad of fresh tangy tomato, succulent cucumber and crispy carrot. The curry is often cauliflower, potato, onion and spinach. Nepalese spinach which is a staple,is always freshly picked, even in Kathmandu, the capital city, and is a seriously wicked vegetable.
Almost every where you go you will be served absolutely fresh (mostly organic) vegetables with a choice of pasta, noodles or rice if you want a change from Dahl Bat, or just in a thick tasty soup
On one occasion my trekking guide advised me to order potato chips (a main course in Nepal) and I did, moments later to see the chef wandering off into an adjacent field to return shortly thereafter clutching an armful of potatoes! And Nepalese potatoes have to be tasted to be believed. So the chips are hand cut and deep fried as well.
Nepal is the most beautiful country to holiday in although it can be a bit strenuous, but if you take it slow you are rewarded with breath-taking scenery on vast scales. At the moment there are problems here, of course, but the country is desperate for paying customers and sensible mature types, who think about what they are doing, weighing possible risks against guaranteed rewards are especially welcome.
Nepal, June 9th 2015
As can be imagined, this year has been unique. An extraordinary experience, good and bad.
I've thought about many things - my parents' generation's experiences during World War 2 : The Old Testament teaching that sin, the breaching of man's covenant with God, is responsible for man's suffering (a Divine perception originating from the Upanishads themselves) : that life needs to be led within a framework of immense flexibility : that science, far from being a benefit to man has placed and is placing him in positions of increasing vulnerability : that whatever disasters befall him, man remains stubborn in his refusal to accept the existence of the Creator and the primal need to live according to the Creator's design
This Nepalese porter is about to carry around 50 kilos from Manju to Tembuche . He has carefully packed the materials himself (a matter of life and death possibly) and by arriving at Tembuche he will have carried it up about 900 metres.It will take him maybe 5 hours,and he told me he gets 1 NR per kilo which is less than €1 although I have heard elsewhere the going rate is NR 15-25.He does this every day.
I got to thinking about sending a similar load from (say) Carlisle to Newcastle.
The client would have to pack the materials safely and within H&S requirements himself or the carrier would not accept it. Then they would need some kind of mobilised lift, perhaps mechanised, to get it to the lorry, which in this case would be a full size pantechnicon. This would have a mechanised lifting tailgate and the driver will be legally required to ensure the load is safely stowed on the vehicle.Then likely it will be off-loaded, overnighted in a depot, and reloaded onto a new vehicle ready for delivery at some point in the next couple of days. At the destination the reverse procedure ensues: all in all up to fifteen people could be involved, not including admin etc . From time of order to delivery could be up to 3 days unless big premium is paid for same day delivery
How did we get in ? You may well ask!
Most lodges in Namche are closed at the moment even the un damaged ones. There are no Trekkers no climbers
