I could give many different answers if asked my favorite part of this Patan homestay, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say it was my morning Tuk Tuk ride. For the past two weeks, I’ve stepped out of my alley and hailed a Tuk Tuk to turn my 30 minute walk to the program house into a 10 minute amusement park ride.
Not only has it saved my body wear and tear, but it’s given me the energy boost to start my days in a good place. Every morning, the people I share the vehicle with are interested in why a non-local is riding a Tuk Tuk at 6:30 in the morning. My perspective of the city has changed drastically since accessing its public transportation and I’ve enjoyed all that I’ve learned. Every day is a new adventure.
