Our trip to Nepal

0 comments

In October we visited Nepal – it was an amazing trip. We fell in love with the country and the people – and recently our heart breaks for the current situation there.

I’m sharing these photographs for two reasons. Firstly, you might consider a trip to Nepal at some stage. Its an amazing country and highly recommended. Secondly, we’d love you to help our Nepal fund here.

We were visiting some N.Irish friends in Nepal who now do some missionary work there. They are safe and well – which is a big relief.

 

So here’s a brief overview of our trip…

 

The best thing about Nepal are the people – so warm, friendly and interesting.

Kathmandu is a vibrant city – there’s always a buzz around it.

…and a big difference between city and country life…

At one stage we visited a local village. They welcomed us with open arms – and our 4yr old with his blonde hair and white skin was a celebrity! We’ve no way of knowing if these people are safe.

Finally, we got invited by Shiva and his wife for a meal in another local village.  It was about a 40min walk from the bus stop to his house up dirt paths. The smoke in the right hand side picture below is our meal being prepared.. It’s very humbling when you realise how little some of these people have – yet they serve you up their best meal.

Some of the homes in the village. These have been badly damaged by 2 major earthquakes.

We want to be able to send Shiva and his family a gift to help rebuild. We also want to send a  donation to the wider appeal. We can’t do much – but every little helps.
