Ilaria Rimondi (Italy)
I have been for a week in a village in Dhading district. I was hosted by a wonderful local family with 2 lovely children. The village was located in the middle of rice terraced hills and forest, incredible landscapes! In the village there were small bazaars for basic necessities and the city with all services is 15-20 minutes away by motorbike. During the day I usually held English lessons and took part in some activities the family was involved in, such as helping with small agricultural jobs or watch them preparing traditional food. They also took me on a short trek in a beautiful panoramic area from which you can admire the Himalayas mountain. It was a very intense experience that allowed me to come into contact with the local reality and taste a bit of the Nepalese life. Both Durga and the family I was staying with were always very kind and helpful to me. I hope to return to Nepal soon!
