Just two days ago we left out homestay families, who have put a roof over our head and food on our plates for 32 days of this program. It started off awkward when I first met them, but by the end of the car ride home the first day we met I already felt more comfortable around them and now that 32 days have passed, I feel like I could come to them with any problem in the world and they would have my back.
My amma, Dolma, made me tea everyday when I came home and we would sit for hours talking about everything from past dragons students to planning a trip back to Nepal. She took me in as her own daughter and made me feel welcomed and loved in their house. My baa, Keshab, always put a smile on my face, telling crazy stories of places the he’s been, joking around about my Nepali, and teaching me important lessons about life and business. My bahini, Diya, is the most intelligent, compassionate, young lady I know, she is 12 years old and always is thinking about the well being of those around her, this upcoming weekend she is volunteering at a local orphanage to help children wash their clothe and keep them company.
I am proud to call these people family, and hope to keep in touch and visit in the near future. Sending love from Nepal….
