I got news for you peeps….
time travel exists.
and it’s called rural nepal.
let’s start with a few dead give-a-ways to time travel:
ox-carts (no cars. i’ll say it again. no cars!)
eating only with your hands (I swear I didn’t see a personal utensil the entire time i was there)
goats and buffalo and chickens running free in everyone’s house
very traditional (but beautiful!) dress
it was without a doubt the 4 physically hardest days of my life.
but it was also amazing and illuminating and incredibly energizing.
one sweet memory that I will cherish forever is when the women in one of the villages received my mother-in-law and I with beautiful sari’s. They spent 45 minutes painting our nails, doing our make-up, painting our feet, giving us a bindi and sindoor on the forehead, and wrapping us in our new sari’s!
it was surreal!
