DAY 316 : Learning Never Stops
Today has been busy focusing on me things...
I've been wanting to learn Limbu language for a while now and I finally had a quick lesson today. Even if it's just a few words I'll be happy to have learned something rather than to just know 'Sewaro'. It was very confusing because I was constantly trying to think of the translation in Nepali and then in English. It was interesting.... like... after quite a while, I felt my brain was really working, was being pushed. Haha! I really hope to continue with a few more lessons but with my plans taking me in and out of Kathmandu, I am not too sure about how much I will actually learn and when my next lesson will be. Oh, the gent who taught me today was once jailed for three months because he was caught teaching the language to others in his village - during the old days - damn hai... kasto samaye'
After that - I slept - lol. And then rushed out to hand over the amount that we fundraised via GoFundMe for Sangita Magar and Sima Basnet, the bainis who were attacked with acid recently. I have wrote a lengthy blog-post on lexlimbu.com so I won't write any more here.
I headed off to a wedding! Sagar Prasai weds Laxmi Khanal! The reception took place in Battisutali. I am so happy for both of them and feel honoured that they extended the invitation to also include me in their celebration. Very thoughtful and kind. I've known Sagar since 2011 and he has grown onto become an amazing, inspiring individual who continues to prove that life is worth giving it your all, your 100%.
Oh and the very kind and generous Malvika and Riyaz dropped me off home. So kind no?
