The real start of our second week! Since we used the first week to get some more grassroots level insights from the field, we are now trying to gather information from a top down level: NGOs and different other associations.
First free day for over a week! Nothing is really planned. We have occasional hangouts, casually discussing our experiences and making some plans for the next week. But basically, we just enjoy the comfort of good coffee on demand, access to water and toilet facilities and co: Back to our everyday life in the cities. With a slight twist of course, since we are still in Nepal.
The driver picks us up at 10AM and we have to say goodbye to our new family. It feels weird that we are most likely not seeing the people of Dhungentar in the future again, especially since we spent the last days with them. Eating the same food, drinking the same water, living in the same houses, being a community.
We decided to pack all our stuff the night before, so after waking up, there is not much more to do than bringing our backpacks downstairs and waiting for everyone to arrive. I am taking my last typhoid vaccination pill from the little fridge in the ‘lobby’, so from now on, I am at least 70% proof according to the doctor. Luckily there actually was a fridge until so far, there probably won’t be any after we leave the capital.
