Lhamu in her kitchen. Yes that is the stove. The only cooking implement and source of heat for the home.

This is Tendi showing us how he knows how to plow a field. One of his friends was out plowing when we went by at the end of our walk. It was too good an opportunity to pass up! He did plow a fine straight line.

Tendi and Lhamu. Tendi is wearing my dad's sweater in honour of dad who we all wish was here enjoying this visit.

  1. Dera Kim, How absolutely wonderful that you finally have visited Tendi’s family. I love seeing you and Karin in Nepali dress. You are looking so at home and happy! ENJOY!!!! Love to you and Karen… Best, Joyce

    • Hi Joyce, Yes Karin and I certainly enjoyed our time at Tendi’s village and being hosted by so many members of his family. We are currently being hard core tourists at a little resort in the hills north or Kathmandu. There’s a big SAARC summit going on in Kathmandu for a couple of days so schools are closed. This seemed to be a good time to get out of Dodge due to heightened security and reduced services.

  2. Dear Kim, you’ve certainly found a place in the hearts of Tendi and family. What an honour, as you say, to be considered a sister and daughter.

    Karin and you are having such interesting experiences together, and it must be nice at times to be able to reflect on those experiences from your shared western perspective. Even with all your travels in Nepal, there must be so many deep rooted cultural values that are constantly revealing themselves.

    Both Bruce and I are so appreciative of your vivid accounts and pictures.

    All the best to you both,
    Leslie

    • Hi Leslie and Bruce, So glad you’re enjoying the blogs. Karin and I are making the most of our time together for sure. Sometimes I forget how wonderful it is to have a friend to share the experiences with. Sure wish there were more of you!! Hint!
