We have been so busy with our preparations for our project and also the Weebly website editor is a pretty heavy loud for this Nepali Internet connection, so just now getting around to updating everyone on how the trip is going so far. There is a lot to tell!
We arrived safely in at the Kathmandu Airport on June 12th and were greeted by Sunil and Saurav Bhandary, two nephews of Hari Bhandary, founder of Clinic Nepal and currently visiting sponsors all over Europe for the summer. Saurav attends Birmingham Southern College in Birmingham, Alabama and has not been back to Nepal in three years, but came this summer so that he could be part of our team and now we cannot imagine the trip without him.
Our first few days in Nepal were spent in Kathmandu and were a mix of project planning and preparation and sight-seeing. Saurav and Sanjay took us to Bhaktapur Durbar Square on our first day.
