VolNepal
April 23, 2010

My time in Nepal has been one of a kind. Although I have traveled a lot in my lifetime this trip has been inspirational as well as eye opening in ways I had never imagined. Coming here, I knew that the Kanti Children hospital was not cutting edge. However, after my first day I realized that while doing what they can the doctors and nurses have little to no means to up the standard of care and comfort for the children. I cannot imagine any other place that would introduce me to the real basic principles of medicine as well as here. Volunteering at Kanti has successfully shocked me in ot my profession, a priceless experience. Being placed in a host family was also a valuable experince. The Dahal family has given me a saste of Nepal that no guest house or hostel could have provided. However, the Nepalese mentality is very protective of its women in thaqt they are to be home by a certain time and wear certain things. While this was an interesting experince, I decided to live in a guest house for the last two days to spend more time with other volunteers, I had met and not feel bad about being home for dinner. I will however, never forget the great hospitality of my host family and will continue to stay in contact. The trips to pokhara and Nagarkot proved to be great fun. I felt very sage at all times and I got to see some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever encountered. All in all, I can ony say that I am already planning my next trip to Nepal.
