Looks like our volunteers from Norway, Kirsten & Taliah have both immersed themselves in village life. A lengthy telephone call to Taliah revealed that Kirsten is away with her host family (the local family she is staying with) attending a wedding in Trishuli Bazaar. We believe she is having a great time at the wedding wearing a ‘sari’ and dancing to the wedding band’s tunes. According to Taliah, Kirsten will be gone for at least 4-5 days as she will be attending all the ceremonies. So while we wait for Kirsten to fill us up on her ‘Nepali wedding experience’, Taliah confided that she is busy exploring the village- walking around , getting acquainted with the villagers and the NGO workers. She said that she has become pretty familiar with the school teachers and students at the Nuwakot Village school.
A group of 23 students and 4 teachers from King George V school arrived from Hong Kong for their Nepal visit. After arriving in Kathmandu, they left for Nuwakot, where they spent three days interacting with the schoolchildren of Bhairabi Higher Secondary School. Going through their pictures, it seems the group had a fun and enjoyable time. According to our office team, who had accompanied the group to Nuwakot, the children expressed their admiration for the folks of Nuwakot whom they felt, “were happy with so little, didn’t have enough but were so hospitable and welcoming.”
Now the group is on a trek to Everest Base Camp.
