Well I'm in china! Sitting at my gate waiting to get on my last flight to Nepal. If I'm being completely honest.. I feel homesick. I've never felt this way before traveling on my own.. I think it's because I haven't met up with anyone in my group yet & I'm all alone!
Okay I made it to Nepal!! I was almost in tears when I (finally) got through immigration/getting my visa, got my bags & walked outside where there were a milli Nepali ppl but no white person to be seen. I was like shoot. FINALLY I was found & was sooo relieved! We spent some time walking down the street markets & then me & Nicole went to the monkey temple! So many monkeys & so many steps. I'm literally sweating bullets here! I love it tho. Such a dirty city but unique place! We're kinda just chillin/exploring & waiting for the rest of the volunteers to get here.
Aaaaaaaand on that note. It's 10:30 pm.. everyone has finally arrived & we are finally getting on the road to head to the shelter. To say I'm tired would be an understatement. I am stuffed in this bus/van thing with at least 15 other people & all their luggage. I'm getting a little claustrophobic & impatient. It's been a long day and I'm ready to go to bed. I have an hour drive ahead of me still. Everything just takes ten years when you are traveling with a group of 50. Please save our souls. Hopefully tomorrow is a better day.
