47 days to Nepal.

Oh the kids and the people we will meet. I am trying not to romanticize but I am told that the people of Nepal are some of the kindest human beings on earth (perhaps due to the influence of Buddhism, which teaches compassion first).

Though I am afraid of my inability to speak Nepali, I recognize that a smile and gestures can often speak volumes. I am excited to meet these people, this culture and to witness the kindness for myself.
