Vacationing vs volunteering

NEPAL | Tuesday, 2 Mar 2010 | Views [551]

I had to catch the 7:30am bus to Kathmandu so I didn’t have much time to spend in Pokhara. I really would have liked to have gone up to the Peace Pagoda, but I’ll just have to come back and do it. January and February is a better time for seeing the ... Read more >

Batuli bids farewell to Damdame

NEPAL | Monday, 1 Mar 2010 | Views [819] | Comments [1]

Last day in Damdame…..Only a few children are at the library this morning and I keep my distance because I feel poorly. When you combine the exertions from yesterdays climb, running around with a wet head in the cool air and the fact that the kids have ... Read more >

Holi cow! Where's the chocolate?

NEPAL | Sunday, 28 Feb 2010 | Views [920]

The first thing I heard Kathryn say when she woke up this morning is that she was going to go to Pokhara to buy some gifts for our host family. I asked if I could go along. As much as I enjoyed the day of leisure yesterday, I knew that I would get restless ... Read more >

Bohini, bohini..... I love that word

NEPAL | Saturday, 27 Feb 2010 | Views [1090]

Last night the water was restored to the village, but this morning it is off again. I groan as I think of my unwashed hair and clothes. I really didn’t want to have to go all the way to Pokhara to take a bath. Then I thought of the river. We passed ... Read more >

Batuli's last day of teaching

NEPAL | Thursday, 25 Feb 2010 | Views [756]

There is a sobering silence over the village this morning as the water still hasn’t returned. The villagers start to feel the pinch as they have to haul buckets up from the well to water their livestock. I stop asking when the water will be back on.... Read more >

Propaganda and roti

NEPAL | Wednesday, 24 Feb 2010 | Views [479]

The rain from the day before had cleared out and left a fine morning. We took the opportunity after the morning session at the library to hike further up on the mountain to get better views of Macchupuchhre and the Annapurnas. I love the contrast of ... Read more >

Batuli and the English teacher

NEPAL | Tuesday, 23 Feb 2010 | Views [803]

I made it to the 11:00 English class today, although the class did not start right away. Apparently there is no penalty for students or the teacher being late to a class. The 11:00 class was the grade eight students and again, I read for them and they ... Read more >

Batuli in the spotlight

NEPAL | Monday, 22 Feb 2010 | Views [794]

I am only one of a few westerners to have visited Damdame, so I am considered to be somewhat exotic. Aamaa’s neighbor, in particular, has taken keen interest in me, and when she comes over I notice her studying me intensely. She is a middle-aged, unmarried ... Read more >
