Dear family and friends of the Him A group,
Last night, the group celebrated their stay in their rural homestay with a big farewell party, giving the students an opportunity to host the families that had been hosting them for the past 9 days. Before the party, however, they managed to sneak in some time for trek prep class, ensuring that all the students bags were packed and fitted properly before they headed into the mountains. This morning, they bade a final farewell to their families and friends in the village, heading off for the Mardi Himal trek, on the flanks of the magnificent Annapurna Range. For nearly the next two weeks, the group will be out in the mountains, so the students will not have any access to phone or internet during that time. Our staff will be getting regular updates from the instructors by phone, and we will be posting occasional updates as they come in from the team. Thanks for following along!
Christy, Nepal Program Director
