Never Seen the Sea - No Words


Mingmar Sherpa, 36, translates the Bible into the Sherpa language, which has no word for the sea. ‘Island’ is translated as ‘dry land on water’ and ‘boat’ is translated as ‘bloated sheep skin with wooden plank’. Mingmar has never seen the sea.

I translate 'the sea' as a collection of many rivers that became a larger river.
