Not long left now, last day.
On Friday me and bree got up and went to the orphanage and helped the kids with there homework and played with them then served them dhall batt and walked them to the bus, then went back to our host families for dhall batt, then at around 10am we walked to the Internet place quickly and checked our emails, then we walked to meet the other volunteer, then we walked towards this place where bree had met this man from Colorado, once at the Internet and he had told her he owned a meditation type garden, so we set off to find this place, on route because it started raining we stopped off at a little tea shop on the side of the road and had tea, then we carried on walking and came to a monks a school, and one of the monks seen us and showed us around, and the place was beautiful and looked into the mountains (got lots of pictures) then we found the place which the man owned and he showed us around which was also beautiful and told us about everything, then we walked back and stopped and one of the restaurants and shared some momo’s, then we walked back to where you can catch the bus to the village where the orphanage is, and caught the bus back. Then played with the kids all afternoon which was nice! Then they had dhall batt and we went back to our host families.
Then on Saturday they had the day off, we got up and went to the orphanage and played with them then they had dhall batt, and we went back for dhall batt, then we went to the public tap to shower as there was no water in the orphanage, the tap was a real experience as the whole village uses it and it was good fun although freezing! Then we went back to the orphanage and got the boys and the younger girls to get there stuff ready and we went to the stream where they washed and played in the water (god knows how they did it as the water was even colder than the tap) then we came back to the orphanage and next doors baby who is 7months was there so we played with him, then we went back to where the steam is and the boys played football on the field and the older girls showered in the stream and washed there clothes. Then we came back to the orphanage and played then it was dhall batt time, and because it was my last night they wanted me to have dhall batt there so I had a little dhall batt sitting on the floor with the kids, then I went to the common room with the kids and they put on a little show for me which was so sweet, full of singing and dancing. Then I went back to my host family and had a little dhall batt there to, then went over to brees house and put some pictures onto her laptop.
Then this morning we both got up and I finished packing and went to the orphanage, and watched the kids do there homework and went into one of the girls rooms and chatted, then the kids had dhall batt, then they did a little ceremony for me and gave me cards they’d made and everyone put a tikka dot on my forehead to say goodbye and by the end my face was red, then we walked them to the bus and waved goodbye and walked back to my host family where the taxi was waiting to take me to thamel, bree also came with me. I checked into a hotel and showered, and just had something to eat! Chicken wings and chips, which was amazingly good! Then this afternoon hoping to meet up with a lad from Workington then going for a volunteers meeting at 4pm at a bar, then we are meeting the new volunteers for dinner and will probably go for some drinks!
Then tomorrow I fly home at 5.30pm so hoping to do some yoga in the morning before heading to the airport!
Can’t wait to see you all!
