I have just returned from 17 days in Mugu, Nepal – 3000 m above sea level in the mighty Himalayas and one of the world’s poorest and most remote areas.
I was there to carry out community development work for the International Nepal Fellowship. It was an experience to say the least!
I’m often asked what it’s REALLY like working in Nepal? So I thought that this time I would take you along for the journey so that you can see for yourself:
- What it’s like to eat food that you’ve never seen before (and have no idea how it was prepared)
- The daggy clothes I’m forced to wear (#dontjudgeme #sorrynotsorry)
- How I prepare to sleep on the ground amidst rats and snakes.
- What happens when babies who only eat lentils don’t wear nappies!
- Tiny children running around with knives.
- And some of the most stunning scenery you’ve ever seen (and the pain it causes hiking from one place to the next!)
All of this and more in this insightful look into the field visit of a community development worker in remote Nepal!
