Katie and Lucy were 2nd year nursing students from Kings College London. They were only here for a short period but made a lot out of it. Working at the hospital, trekking in the mountains, going for jungle safari, cycling to explore the city were just a few things they did. They also celebrated the festival of colours: Holi, during which they got painted in red, blue and green, got drenched with water and also took a dive in the Fewa lake (daring!)
They also did the village experience which gave them an opportunity to immerse themselves in typical Nepali family in the village high up on the mountains.
They worked in the health post, sang and danced with the community people, decked themselves up in traditional attire, helped in the kitchen, and most importantly experienced the real Nepal.
