School Vacation Trips


With the end of the school year, the SH gang had three weeks of vacation to enjoy.  The older children went to Manakamana to visit a historic temple which is reachable by cable car.  They also stayed overnight at a hotel, which for many of them was their first stay in a hotel.

 Ritika, Dipa and Sharmila in the cable car.


 Mina does not appear to enjoy the heights, but Sarita is there to calm her nerves.

 At the temple...
 Dipa, Pratima, Sharmila, Chija and Ritika.

 Mina, Sangita, Maya, Sarita, and Sabita.

 The whole gang plus didis Ramila and Asuna.

The middle children went to the Peace Pagoda on the far side of Phewa Lake and the Mountaineering Museum in the southern end of Pokhara.  

 Pushpa, Santosh, Bishal, Saran, Rina and Suraj at the Peace Pagoda.

The littlest ones had a picnic down by the Seti River with the didis.  They had a great time, but some heavy rains caught them on the walk home… 


Please know that making these trips, having these opportunities would have been inconceivable to the children prior to Sam’s House.  Your support makes this possible.  Thank you.

LOL, Mina. Gosh how I miss all your lovely faces! It looks like you really had a great trip. Manakamana is amazing!
