We really did it. Packed our bags, left our jobs, our cars, families, friends, pretty much everything and moved to Nepal with 4 suitcases for 9 months to give our lives to this country...a country where the average per capita income is US $1,137 per year, a dozen eggs costs $1, and a 1 person bus ride is less than $.15. It's not often I get to live out a "dream" (literally), move someplace else, and start life all over again. We are beyond ecstatic to be here, full of life, yet we are totally inadequate, and entirely humbled to have this opportunity to experience a new life all over again. Rich landscapes of barley and corn..the taste of fresh samosas, the sound of monsoon rains, clean laundry blowing atop Kathmandu rooftops, a wisp of burning trash, cows grazing in the field, no-rule roads, and so much more.
Already we've experienced so much yet so little. Hello, Nepal. Here's to our first 2.5 weeks.
