Homestay Parties and Goodbyes

This Saturday was our homestay party. As part of their expedition phase, students had worked throughout the week to organize the food, decorations and entertainment for the party. In addition to some amazing live Nepali musicians, the students sang Nepali and English songs for their families. By far the highlight for everyone’s homestay brothers and sisters was the piñata made from a cardboard box! Please enjoy these pictures from the party.

Although the group is sad to leave their families, we are already looking forward to the next phases of the trip. The students have organized two days of activities and good food in the nearby town of Bhaktapur and then we travel to the Buddhist nunnery for our retreat.
