Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger Hunt (Jackson, Grace & Laura)

As we sit on our terrace, we gaze upon the vast valleys of Kathmandu. Although it’s only been four days, it feels like it’s been weeks. From tea four times a day to Nepali Language classes with Deepa Ji, we are beginning to be immersed in a new and wonderful culture. While we find ourselves missing some of the comforts of home, they seem small when we see monkeys hanging on the side of the road or hear the chiming of the temple bells. This is only the start of our journey together and though we don’t know what to expect, there is only more beauty and wonder to experience. As Confucius said, ‘’ The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”.
