Off to school

Greetings from rural Nepal…wish you were here!

Photo taken en route to the start of the Annapurna Trek in October 2010 in Nepal.

There is something wonderfully magical about Nepal.  The culture entranced me and the beauty took ahold of my heart and soul.  Despite the dire poverty of rural Nepal, a place in which most Nepalese make less than $2 a day, the beautiful children were always smiling and greeting us with namastes.  Their requests were simple, “Namaste!  Can I please have a school pen?“.  I had wished I had brought an entire backpack full of pens to offer them especially given the fact that so few have the opportunity to become educated.

Someday I know I’ll return to Nepal.  I fell in love with the country too much to never go back.  This time, I’ll remember to bring along some cheap pens and hope that it will at least help the children learn their ABCs.

  1. Hello,
    I also had the chance to travel to Nepal three years ago, and although the trip turned out to be shorter than planned, it left such an impression on me that I am planning to go back – some day, some how. There’s so much of the country and peoples that I still want to see.
    If you would be interested, here’s the link to my blog while I was there :

    Will now go and browse all your Nepal-related posts!


    • Beautiful pictures! I really enjoyed checking out your blog! If you didn’t have a chance to visit the mountains, it is a must! I especially loved Pokhara which is half way between the Annapurna Circuit. You can read all my posts on Nepal at my site under nepal. A wonderful place! Thanks for your comment!
