I returned as part of the community

To me, the month of August meant an incredible adventure in the city of Kathmandu, Nepal. I left as a job shadower and returned, after three weeks, as part of their community, bringing home little pieces of their astonishing spirituality, kindness and joy. I met a lot of great local and international volunteers from all over the world, with whom I shared beautiful experiences an together we worked to help redevelop the earthquake afflicted community of Nepal.

As an european, it was difficult to adjust to this type of exotic lifestyle, but what was really harder was adjusting back. For example, nepali quisine changed my life. Part of my experience involved learning from my host family how spices are more than hot or salty. Moreover, these sorts of spices that I descover can add a handfull of amazing taste to the simplest ingredients. When I arrived back home, I hardly ate anything because I only found processed food, unlike the healthy food I got used to in Nepal. Along with my taste for food, I had to change my taste for people. Meeting such spiritual and hard-working people made me revise every aspect of modern easterrn society.

This journey truly requires a healthy body and a strong mind and most of all, a great desire to help and have fun, for there is a lot to learn from the people of Nepal – they truly deserve all the help we can give them. From the work at Global Place, these people teach you that power doesn’t only come from the mind, but also from the streinght of our backs and the beating of our hearts.
