The holidays were a success here in Kathmandu! I hope the same was true for everyone back home!
I went out with friends on both Christmas Eve and New Years Eve, treating ourselves to a great time. We even got creative and decided to jump into the new year by standing on chairs and jumping into the air as the clock struck midnight.
I will be leaving Kathmandu, finally, Monday evening for India! I won't be by myself, but with a couple friends and 30 little Nepali orphans from an orphanage that I've been volunteering at since Christmas day. The kids are really something, and they are extremely excited for their trip to Goa to see the ocean for the first time!
There is something very special about every single child in this group. The majority have come from families that didn't want them anymore, and abandoned them entirely. For each child's story please visit the main website: http://www.happyhomenepal.org/.
I could go on and on about these kids, but this post would turn into a novel. If you take a look at the website, and you think that you might be interested in helping in any sort of way please let me know. I can talk to you about what can be done and what is needed the most.
That's all for now. My next post will hopefully be from India!
