Roosters crowing children growing, got big plans but dirty pants, with kids to teach life is sweet!

Power Out

I guess the one good thing about having no electricity is getting to reference one of your favorite songs.

We had a very bad storm three days ago. The electric is out all over the valley, and there is something wrong with our inverter so we’ve no solar power either.

Line water has also stopped running temporarily so we are rationing water.

We tried to take the kids to a local natural spring where you can bathe and wash clothes, but they were cleaning the reservoir so no luck there either.

I’m writing from the radio station, which has a generator. They have been kind enough to translate our entrance exams into Nepali and let us use their printer and internet while we wait.

Tomorrow is the big day for entrance exams.

Wish our prospective students luck and think rainy and/or electric thoughts for Kopila!

More when things return to normal.

    Hey Lisa,

    Love reading your updates and so glad you made it. Hate to hear about the electricity situation. Sounds like you are having a wonderful experience. We miss you here in Dallas and look forward to hearing all the stories when you return.

    Take Care.

    Lisa….Been thinking about you and your great adventure to Nepal. That was one of the most memorable places I ever visited. I can still smell the incense, tea and wet wool, while walking around Katmandu. Prayer flags and bells heightened the experience. The beauty of the Himalayans is above all! I’m actually working in Arkansas today and had some down time between appts. This is my first visit and part of my new territory. A nice change from the big city. It’s very hot now in Dallas—approaching 100. Ron and I ventured out on a twilight ride a couple days ago with his 20 year old son and fortunately, it had cooled down enough to make it fun. My daughter is home from A&M for the summer and Cameron now has his permit to drive—scarey! News from the US is still no resolution with that stupid oil gushing into the Gulf. So sad. Guess we won’t be going to the Gulf Shores any time soon. Hope you’re staying healthy and having a great life experience over there. You’re doing an awesome thing, girl. Miss ya’! Lots of love….Lolly
