Left: Munu Shrestha (25) and members of her extended family have taken shelter in a nearby agricultural shed with several other families after the earthquake left their home in the old bazaar district of Sankhu uninhabitable and the family homeless. Munu has recently finished her bachelor's degree in accounting and hopes to pursue a master's degree overseas. 'My first choice would be America.' Munu's grandmother died in the earthquake so her father and all her maternal uncles will wear white for a year. Her father owns a glass shop in Kathmandu and none of his stock survived.<br />
