A quick one as i just deleted my really long one!
Finally got off of the plane and recieved our bags, saw a coffin being delivered which was a little weird! We were very smelly and nervous after our epic journey! So we walked out, and there was NO ONE there....ahhhhh!!
SO....walked outside where there were millions of people with signs, trying to get us into their taxi's and/or hostels. All very dramatic, but eventually we found a sign with 'Ullens School Rosalie/Megan' THATS US!!
So we jumped in the driver's car and headed off, Rose had no seatbelt and both of us had no money!!
We passed a few Nepalese schools, and dreaded what awaited us....its very dusty. We had a few near misses on the road, saw alot of litter, had alot of stares and saw some amazing scaffolding made from bamboo... but all very entertaining.
Pulled up to the school.......
With its high security gates and all....not joking!! Met Medin (Principal) and Sam (Operations Director) who took us to our room...no appartment...no luxury penthouse suite....not joking!!
We have two bedrooms, a lounge/kitchen/potential dance floor, one ensuite and a bathroom. Plus our balcony, which is defintely a dancefloor, with the sun setting at night. PLUS we have access to the roof, which looks over the Himalaya's! We even have new beds and CK juvets!!!
We are the only people that live on site apart from the 11 security guards who patrol 24/7!!
We went down and met Medin and Sam who offered us tea...with milk...YES PLEASE! But no not in Nepal! The milk is like coagulated gone off milk...of course we politely sipped away trying to work out which hand we were meant to be using to drink it and the such like...fun times!
Back at our Suite with our supper bought courtesy of Sam and Medin of Nepalese mincemeat dumplings (Mao mao) and two pizzas we were set for a feast! Had a little change around of the furniture so that we are both now in one bedroom and the spare room is our dressing room....very posh...we know! No hot water...not so posh...we know!!
Went to bed at 8.30 as shattered just after a VERY scary powercut...
Rosalie back to you....
