Saturday: Met with Ruth and Dan at the Crown hotel and then had a small town visit. They explained us the health and safety and we were excited to go to the house and meet the other volunteers.

Sunday: We started the morning with a Nepali lesson with Chet. We just can’t wait to go to our projects and get stuck in! In the afternoon we had our project presentations.

Monday: After our second Nepali visit we visited a monastery with Chet. Afterwards we had a delicious dal bhat with him. We then were taken to our projects, which were really amazing!! We were also so happy to see the other projects as well.
