One of the wonderful things about Nepal is that they have a enormous variety of fruits, legumes, vegetables, food in general...incredibly delicious food! At pre-school the children generally have around 11.20 am lunch which consists always with rice and some veggies and/or beans/lentils and later on around 2pm a snack. I noticed that they don't eat any fruit, I dont know if it's cultural thing, or currently there are not many seasonal fruits, or the easiest thing to do is to give them rice so for this last one I wanted to participate and contribute. So on Monday i went to get apples (or course with the previous permission of the school's principal), red, huge, crunchy sweet apples...and as an extra i gave them a cookie (stroopwaffels all the way from The Netherlands). They were soooo happy! You'd think it was the cookie, Noooo!!! They were asking for more apples, it was just amazing seeing them eating and having fun. So after the apple succes I asked if it's possible to bring snacks again and they said yesss! I think next time it will be bananas...no more cookies hahaha that was an extra from my side.

So do you have an idea what I am working on now from the ingredients mentioned in this update's subject?

Yes...it's what you're thinking but what exactly am I gonna be using those for? Solar system🌞🌎⭐ isn't this cool? The idea is to hang them to the ceiling with the sun in the center. I'm still thinking in how to make the sun, since there is no balloon big enough to represent it, so I just want a small part of it. Have to admit that still a bit weird to work on this project and think "8 planets".

Hopefully I finish this by the end of the week, cause I'm running out of time and still plenty of things I would love to do over here.

Despite the rain, hard wind and more rain Children's day was a total success and the most important thing the kids had a wonderful time. The program lasted almost 2 hrs, all the children started by signing the Nepalese national anthem and their school song

The Nursery class (little ones) sang and danced in English and Nepalese.

Later on LKG (kids between 3/4 years old) also danced and sang both in English and Nepalese (seriously bravo to the dance and music teacher for the choreography) and as a finale they did a mini-speech about veggies, fruits and anima l, this was my favourite part cause they did it individually and though some of them were super nervous the did not forget their lines and some actually did a bit of performance of their subject (see below 😻)

And well principal of the school asked me to do a speech about my experience so far at the school...to make this long story short, I couldn't stop thanking the parents, school members and especially the kids for giving me the opportunity to be here, honestly it's me the one learning the most!

So have a look at those face...aren't they the cutest?

Another festival is just around the corner which is "Children's day" so we are in the last round with all the decorations, rehersals, snacks, etc.

For this occasion, the kids will be performing some singing, dancing and recitals(mini) this last one about vegetables, flowers and/or animals therefore I've been working with the kids to memorize their lines and I've created a mini sign with the subject they've been assigned to talk about.

As part of the decorations and because is Children's day, I drew faces of children from different parts of the world, I did it like this cause I want to let them know that despite looking different (tall/short, curly/straight hair, dark/light skin, skirt/pants, etc.) at the end, they are all Children!

Hartalika Teej (or Teej) is the fasting festival of girls & women in Nepal 👭 It usually takes place in Nepali Bhadra month (August to September in Solar Calendar) and lasts for three days and it's celebrated with songs, dancing and prayer rituals. Unmarried girls look forward to a good marriage in the future, and married women pray for the long and healthy life of their husbands.

On August 31st at "Bal Balika" Montessori & Pre-School I had the opportunity to celebrate such a beautiful tradition surrounded by strong & hardworking women together with their beautiful children 🥰❤👭👧💃😍

P.S. fasting is a choice, so those who know me...well you know what food means to me 🤣🤣🤣

From Sunday to Friday at 9:15 am, this is the path I take to "Bal Balika" Montessori & pre-school where I am currently volunteering. The first 2 days I had someone who showed me the way to get there, although I have to admit that on the third day I was very afraid of getting lost, but I did it! It can be a 10-minute walk, but it is complicated, full of streets, alleys and ups and downs (I still get tired when going up 🤣🤣🤣), but once I arrive and see the faces of the children, all struggles disappear 🧒❤🧡💛💚💙💜🖤👧

Hi guys!

I'm sorry, I didn't write before, but since I set one foot in Nepal, I immediately felt that it was going to be a completely different experience unlike the ones I've had before.

At this moment I am about to have breakfast with the rest of the volunteers (5 in total) and 10 minutes later (walking) I will be at "Bal Balika daycare" ... I am running a little late, so I will leave you a picture so you can see how easy you can fall in love with Nepal and its people ... especially children🥰🥰🥰

I am glad to inform you that 3rd blanket it's finished, washed and ready to travel!

By now I should be able to say "everything is packed" but the truth is that I still need to put "everything" in the backpack, but the good thing is that at least I have everything already organised in the packing cubes, which I do have to say after reading lots of websites, bloggers, travellers experiences I've decided to give it a try...let's see how it goes!

Today I will buy the yummy gifts....cheese and stroopwafel, well actually I need to buy MORE stroopwafel because yesterday that I went to the Albert Heijn (store) and I took the last 3 left in the store....no enough!

🇳🇵❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤

Countdown
02 days (and 5 hrs)!
