Nepal has beautiful scenes of valleys, snow-capped mountains, lush green forests, holy temples, elegant huts, and wonderful smiles of Nepali people. Nepal also has scenes of pollution - Dust and smoke in the winds, paper and plastic littering everywhere, over flown garbage containers, and spittle makes up the most of the city experience in Nepal.
But don't despair. The Kathmandu Three have discovered a little bit of heaven in the middle of the noisy, busy city. It's called the Garden of Dreams and was refurbished in 2007. Molly and I have ducked in a couple of times for some green space, peace and quiet. It has a number of babbling water features that can soothe our frazzled nerves. Enjoy the photos!
...victory, respect, and a salute to the divine. I'm on a one woman mission to help the whole world fall in love with Nepal and discover the divine embedded in the turmoil. To my home away from home: Jai Nepal!!!
I'm completing my Master's degree at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service. I've just completed my International Public Service Project in Kathmandu, Nepal working with READ - Rural Education and Development - an INGO that opens libraries that serve as community development centers. What's next? More public service in Nepal and the U.S.
