Quick hello

08 Jun

Arrived to Kathmandu from Delhi and thankfully it’s nowhere near as hot as India (over 110 degree Fahrenheit). I’m at the Collective Campaign for Peace headquarters where there is a steady stream of active volunteers to greet and make friends with.

They are all very friendly and from the look of it, very involved in COCAP. Have a meeting tomorrow to find out more about my assignment in Baglung and what is expected from us Peace Fellows. So far, Kathmandu is a mystery, but I’ll hopefully start figuring it out soon.
