Flashback: September and October 2008

“Mom, do you have any pictures from Nepal?”, asked Justin.

Well … let’s see … only about 2,000 of them.

“No, no, not on the computer, like some that I can take with me to school to show the class”, he said.

At the Chitwan National Park

They’re studying India and Nepal in World History, and he suddenly remembered that I had travelled there.  So he told his teacher, who then asked him to bring in some photos for the class. We settled on giving her my Nepal blog address instead, so that they can look through it in class.

My original blog while I was in Nepal is at:  NamasteFromNepal.blogspot.com.  I’ve since imported the posts to this blog to keep it in one place.  Looking through my original blog, I am suddenly swamped with memories of the experiences I had while there.

Santi Kali, Chitwan National Park

It’s hard to choose which ones were my favourites.  I was drawn to the nature and wild life, specially out in the Chitwan National Park.  It was a complete jungle out there, and seemed so remote.

And of course, the mountains … you can’t miss them not seeing them.

I didn’t stay long enough to experience everything, and even now it feels like the trip was incomplete.  I still have plans of travelling back there one day, for some type of closure. When that is, I don’t know.  Coincidentally, this is also the anniversary of my trip to Nepal.  I seem to be travel most during the last quarter of the year.  Last year at this time, I was in Timor-Leste.

In the meantime, I look through these photos and get immersed in memories … perhaps one day I’ll put them all together with a short narrative on my experiences with that particular photo … another project to add to the list.

Have a good weekend, all.
