I've been in Nepal for the past two weeks and enjoyed it very much, although I find that compared to India or Africa it lacks a bit of character.
Coming from India though I couldn't help enjoying greatly the peace of the Himalayas, not to mention the lake in Pokhara.
There is a very laid-back atmosphere, it's so chilled out here!
I met my father in Kathmandu and then travelled with him around Nepal for the past 10 days, which was really pleasant. I still have a week to go before going to Cambodia, so I'll travel a bit more.
I was also lucky enough to meet Rajesh, who is the wisest teenager on earth. His story is very harsh but with a happy ending. Davide, a lovely Italian guy, has taken care of Rajesh and his education since Rajesh's parents died. Rajesh is now 15, very good at school, ridiculously wise for his age and his face does not bear any shadow from his troubled past, which I found simply amazing.
Thank to the financial support I received from some good souls before leaving London, I decided to contribute to Rajesh's school fees for the next year and will keep contributing once I get back home. If you have a look at the album "Rajesh" I'm sure you'll understand why. I took pictures of the school as well, as I was both surprised and happy to see that there are schools interested in the pupils' soul and not only in their maths skills. I couldn't imagine a better investment.
