There are a lot of things that I want to say about my time in Patle Village, Nepal. It was four weeks in which I felt like the rest of the world didn't exist, but I thought about it all quite a bit. I hate the phrase 'it was a life changing experience' and well, it wasn't really, but it has left a few impressions. There will be time later for more details. Above is a picture of the school I taught in.

This is a picture of Class Six. There are thirty six of them in the class and they have to share the classroom with the cement and all the building materials for the library, which is being built outside the window. I liked them a lot, they were funny. Once the village dog came and slept on the floor as I taught.

Rahm-ro is a Nepalese word that has a range of meanings- it all depends on the context. It can mean beautiful, well done or wonderful. I used it a lot while I was in Patle.
