clearly i have run out of inspiration for this uninspired blog, but here are some photos for those still playing at home. Photos are from 2 field trips i took recently to the Terai, Hills and Mountiain districts (1 of each) for conduct Focus Group discussions with community health volunteers about a particular program . It was hot, and humid, and sweaty, people generally avoid the terai in the monsoon. I now understand why.

Old lady, 75 years old, widowed at 28, 4 kids, just got back from Muktinath a sort of hindu pilgramage site, she was pretty cool.

the cutest thing to hit the terai since baby donkeys - a kids school carriage. unfortunately it seems as though nepali kids a trained not to smile
