…moving backwards in time…
What an awesome way to spend our last afternoon in Kathmandu!
Some of the older girls speak English. They study really hard at school, because they know how important it is for their future
The kids in the Buddhist Child Home in Jorpati-2 and their Mum Durga and their helpers were really welcoming when Shaye and I arrived. Shaye had visited with a friend she met at the Yoga centre, before I arrived in Kathmandu and the kids were really excited to welcome her back.

We played with the kids, juggled, and all made balloons for each other.
Some of the kids speak a little English and some of us just communicated with tickles and giggles and hugs.
Durga is Mum to 50 children! She just can’t say no. She is a Buddhist and when an orphaned baby is brought to her, they are welcomed into the Buddhist Child Home with open and loving arms.

The boys all get along really well and are very playful and fun. Their favourite thing to do is to play football and we bonded over World Cup. I don’t like to brag, but in the Nepal v Australia match. Astralia scored convincingly, possibly because Nepal was very polite and can aim their kicks better!

Hope your day is as wonderful as mine today.
