Dhal Bhat Days

The story of volunteering in a remote mountain village in Nepal. Read the story of adventure of culture shock, teaching, living above a buffalo barn, removing leaches, peeing with a giant spider, and meeting some of the best people in the world.

“It rained last night like I’ve never experienced before in my life. I now understand the meaning of Monsoon season. Sure, maybe it was amplified in my mind as it sounds worse when you are sleeping under a tin roof; it echoed through my little barn room as if someone was dumping gravel from above. At one point I did actually consider that the whole mountain might float away. It was better to think of that rather than the huge spider that I saw above my bed before I fell asleep.”
