Nicole Johnson-Hello Nepal!

We have internet! We made it to New Delhi, India and stayed the night. It was a 12 1/2 hour flight from New York to New Delhi. When we arrived it was 104 degrees out! We loaded into a coupe of vans and made our way to the hotel for the night. The driving was crazy! Everyone was driving little cars and there were no rules to the road. We have internet!

We then had to get up at 4am to catch our flight to Kathmandu. Funny side note, one of the guys in customs was really interested in my height, or lack thereof and made sure to comment. Can’t escape it! In Kathmandu we are staying at a beautiful hotel with a great view of the town and the mountains. On our first day we met our hosts and had a great Indian lunch. Then it was on to shopping for the afternoon. Everything was beautiful. There was a man in the streets, apparently drunk, who also commented on my height. I just walked passed then had a good laugh about it. It is day 2 here in Nepal and this morning we woke up and left at 6:30am for yoga class! it was great. It was kind of intense but learning the art and history of the yoga was really fun. We then had breakfast back at the hotel and changed for a trip to the host college. At the college we had a few speakers and some cultural dances performed by some of the students. It was amazing. Yet again somone commented on my height saying that i fit in with the Nepalese. It is good to know that no matter what country you are in that some things never change. We are leaving our hotel tomorrow to move on to a new part of Nepal. So far everything has been amazing and I am truly amazed and grateful to be on this trip. I can’t wait to experience more. Until next time all!

  1. The height thing never ends. People ask me all the time, “are you sure you are an American? I thought Americans were tall…” Embrace your uniqueness. It will make people feel endeared to you. It is an asset to breaking down the barriers when meeting new people all over the world. Keep the missives coming!
