The New House / Saturday Afternoon 

We used the afternoon to spend some time together. Laxmi was gone to a meeting and the children had “silent sitting time”. Hmmmmm… It seems to work this “silent-sitting-time”, at least for some time. Enough to allow the husband to read his newspaper, something he seems to enjoy and do extensively every day.  I asked the…

Tradition / Food from the Neighbour / Namaste

Nepal I am coming again / Help Raising Funds

Some of you asked me during my trip to Nepal if I had a donation option to support Laxmi and her 11 orphans. Which retrospectively would have been a great idea. But as you can see I am learning as we speak. 22 days left to go! It would be great if you would help…
