Our journey has started off very well and Nepal has been a terrific place to start. It has been an incredible experience and I have felt an extremely potent and present flow of spirituality and happiness wherever I have been. In particular, the stupa has been a very interesting centerpiece to our adventure and has been what I have noticed. It is a big part in most everybody’s life around the area. My favorite part of our trip thus far has been the scavenger hunt because it gave us the freedom to interact with the locals and find things out about them and their culture that we otherwise would not have known. In doing so I witnessed first hand the difference in cultures between this and the one back home. First of all, everyone is so kind, happy and forgiving. The only person that rejected us when we asked for help was someone from the West. All of the locals were extremely helpful and patient and it has shown me the value placed on happiness.
