Dear friends and family back home,
We have successfully finished our trek, our while group reunited, and are settling into the rhythm of life here in the village of Chokati. With shorter group meetings for lunch and lots of time spent with our new homestay families, we are really able to focus on experiencing and understanding how the folks in Chokati go about their lives and work in a side-by-side approach. With early bedtimes, lots of daal bhat, and the occasional chicken in the house, we are all enjoying the physical struggles of farming life and the emotional ease of having more time and space than we have during the trek.
We have limited Internet access here, but are collecting lots and lots of student-written yaks to be posted as soon as possible. Stay tuned!
With love and endless gratitude, as always,
