Trying my hardest not to fall asleep, but it isn’t working so just a quick post to say I’m in Kathmandu at the House of Hope, its a complete culture shock and there is nothing similar to anything in my life! Finding wireless made my day, and the rest of my day was made up of: flying out of Mumbai after 10 hours in transit, (2 hours sleep), making a friend at the airport, meeting Gopal and Eli, meeting 31 children and young adults who make up the young charges here, de-podding soybeans, almost dying of the heat, had my first homesick cry, made friends with the older girls, taught how to cook a traditional meal for 25 people, being asked many many times if I’m Christian, and stared at with huge eyes by small children.
House of Hope is outside the bustle of Kathmandu in an extremely picturesque village. Photo’s when I can again! They have 4 cows, 4 cats and 6 dogs. And I think I’m going to get sick of dhal baht very quickly.
