Our experience of living and working in LESOTHO, the kingdom in the sky:

LESOTHO is a landlocked country completely surrounded by another country, the Republic Of South Africa..A land of mountains, Lesotho is the only country in the world which has all its land lying at the altitudes in the excess of 1500 meters above sea-level; land of heights and extremes.Following site illustrates with several beautiful photographs of the country showing its topography.

You may read about ROMA- the university town of University of Lesotho, and the capital of Lesotho, Maseru , elsewhere in detail. Both are just very small towns.

Sushma got an opportunity to work as Documentalist with ISAS ( Institute of Southern African Studies ), a research Unit of the University of Lesotho. After a lot of consideration, we took a bold and bad decision for her to go all alone to a far and a very unknown place. She lived there all alone in an isolated and last house on that street  on campus which was certainly not a safe place to live for a lady to live alone. How she managed all her day to day affairs over there, she may know better but I was scared when I visited her there once.She worked there  February 1992 to March 1993. Later , after living for a short while in Addis Ababa, She went to Join her MLIS program with Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan, USA.
