We now wake up every morning wrapped in mist with birds of prey sitting outside our window and when it clears amazing views over the valley and the Himalayas. It's all incredibly beautiful.
We have been very lucky with our accommodation. We live in a big house with a stunning view shared with a guy called Niku and a St Bernards dog. We have a boys and a girls bathroom, a sitting room, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room and an amazing balcony. Far better than any hotel and it's free!!! The one negative aspect is maybe that we have a huge TV with DVD player so we spend more time indoors then we probably should.We have now been here a week and got to know our routine. We work from 3-5:30pm at the after school club trying to give children a chance to be children. Bridget a woman from Wales runs it along with 3 Indian helpers they're all incredibly friendly. They don't really need us but the children appreciate the new faces and the new activities. We brought them twister and I'm currently knitting brightly coloured rabbits with them, Indians aren't really into neutral colours. So far it's going quite well as we're starting to get used to what to expect although teaching a left handed child to knit was just a wee bit beyond me especially with all the other children shouting "Maam" and clamoring for attention and praise. I think we're going to do rocking Parrots nextJ
Unfortunately although my stomach held up for quite a while eventually the foreign food just got too much for it. The last few days I've been in bed most of the time tossing and turning. I got the runs, I was sick and then I was feverish. It seems to be almost passed now though and I'm just a little weak from not eating properly for a few days. I knew it would happen though and at least it's over now. I feel sorry for Sean and Cait but they dealt with it wonderfully. I'm really glad they're with me:-)
I'll add some more photos soon once I've sorted them a bit. Lots of hugs to everybody… xXx
