I feel like writing this blog post is going to take solid hours because of all the adventures I've been lucky to have experienced in the past 3 weeks.

this is something I never could have prepared myself for.
It is harder than I expected,
the poverty hurts my heart more than I expected,
and I'm more homesick than I expected.
But through this, I have surprised myself.
I have become a part of families here
I have communicated without using any words,
and I have danced in front of over 200 Nepali women.
.......whether it was good Nepali dancing or not, that's not rrreeeally important.
Before this, I never realized how wired human beings are to adjust to different situations.
No matter what it is, we adjust.
Our heart, our mind and our thoughts adjust.
No matter how difficult we think it is,
and how much we doubt are ability to exist,
And we learn and grow and eventually we forget that we even had to adjust in the first place.
And that place that was once so foreign to us, becomes home.
