These are the experiences of our volunteers in Nepal.


May 9: Dubsteppin’ to the project site

Posted in Nepal on May 10, 2013


The bus ride: 10 hours of dusty, bumpy roads, some beautiful scenery and A LOT of goats. It was hilarious because we were all a little bit delirious from dehydration and lack of bathroom breaks. Our kind bus driver bought us an English Music Volume 2 CD and a Linkin Park music video DVD. We were listening to dubstep as we travelled through tea hills and forests. We arrived in Lamahi just as the sun was setting, threw down our bags and ran to the roof of our small, family owned hotel. We had tea on the roof which was lovely as there was a nice breeze to cool us off from the really really hot weather (about 38 degrees). We went to bed, ready for our worksite orientation the next day.
