How about that buffalo curd

I’ve been in Nepal for 48 hours, and it says a lot that the buffalo curd is not one of the three best things on the trip so far. In fact, let me tell you what the three best things are.

  1. The people! I have never met a group of more interesting people. We have bonded wonderfully, both collective and individually, and I know already I’m going to learn an enormous amount from them.
  2. The temple: we walked a short distance to a Hindu temple but it felt like we transported to a whole different place. I can honestly say, sitting in the temple looking down the steep, jagged steps I felt a sense of inner peace I haven’t felt in years. I know it sounds cheesy, but I am being 100% honest right now.
  3. What is to come: As we have explored this trip more in depth, I have become more and more excited. I can’t wait.

Ok. Back to the curd. The food has been phenomenal, be it curd, soup, or the milk tea. I am in love with the food here, and I only have one thing left to say. Mom and Dad: thank you.
