January 2008 Visit

Veering away from Sam's House for a moment... my mother and I arrived in Nepal two days ago for a visit. We're still in KTM, heading to Pokhara tomorrow. So if you'll allow the intrusion, I wanted to post some photos for family and friends about the trip to date.


Walking across the tarmac at Tribhuvan International Airport.


Carole getting her visa at the KTM airport. Interpol was notified.


Shopping in Ason after the workday.


Lunch with Anita's family. From left: Anita, Marin, Jeni, Anita's mother, and Manika.


Up the stairs to Swayambhunath.


From Swayambhunath you can see all of the Kathmandu Valley.

Hi Carole and Chris! So nice to see the pictures of you in Nepal. WOW, amazing the things you have seen. Glad you got to meet the kids and those that care for them. They are so cute! I'm sure they fell in love with you Carole. THey will be sad to see you leave. We await your arrival home, we've missed you! :) Thanks for posting the pictures and the updates, it's so interesting to see what you've done over there. The kids are so lucky to have Sams House! God bless you for the work you're doing. Love ya's! :)
