A long update

Sorry for being absent for such a long time, but I've been in bed with a terrible flu and my computer crashed for the fourth time in less than a year, so I finally got a new one.
So what has happened during the last couple of weeks?
Our friends Christer and Karina came and stayed with us for a few days before they went trekking around Pokhara and had a pleasant visit at the national park in Chitwan riding an elephant, watching rhinos and got chased by mosquitoes.
Here they are planning the trek with our friend and trekking guide Prem.
Before they went back to Sweden Karina ordered a pair of handmade boots.
See the cool fabrics she has chosen for the boots at the front to the right in the picture.
We got donations from friends in Sweden and The Netherlands so we could help Prem and buy a computer for his lovely daughter Muna who is studying computer science in collage.
I'm so grateful to have friends all over the world who have the heart and resources to help us help friends here in
A week ago my mom came to visit us for a month.
It was so great so see her again!
On Tuesday mom will go to Chitwan for the whole safari adventure. She got inspired by Christer and Karina!

The Indians are still blocking the borders so petrol, cooking gas, medicines and other products can't come to Nepal.
It's an horrible situation for many people. For example has Maya been forced to walk the streets again selling pouches to tourists even though she has her own shop. There are simply no products she can purchase and sell.
The blockade isn't sanctioned, but no one seem to care.
This situation is just horrible and a big set back for Nepal after the earthquakes.
Where is UN when you need them?
