Travel Diary

I just got back last week from a two week stay in Nepal. I was attending a workshop about the language method Kevin & I have been using for the past year. While the workshop was certainly helpful, I have to say that the highlight was being in a place as exotic as Nepal. In fact, to my shame, I spent a few too many sessions gazing out the classroom window at blue skies, puffy clouds, and terraced hills like these:

I mean, seriously, is that sky even real?

One of my favorite aspects of traveling abroad is the everyday things that seem so new and interesting to my foreign eye. A window, a bus, a door frame...all so colorful and exotic!

But my favorite thing by far about traveling abroad is the beauty of the people. I love seeing God's creativity expressed through the faces of the world. That's why the majority of my pictures are of people and why my next blog will just be the faces of Nepal. So you'll just have to stay tuned for more Nepal pictures & stories to come, including my travel woes ("Seven Years NOT in Tibet") and some deep thoughts during a six hour layover ("Reminders of Home").

(Best yet is that all these posts have already been written & post-dated so you won't have to worry about my empty promises to be a consistent blogger...)

Yay! Love it! We have a really sweet family from Nepal that is doing work here in Houston loving on the Nepali refugees here. Looking forward to your future posts. And trying to be motivated to write on my blog. I love the idea of blogging. The reality is a bit different.
