We flew into Nepal last Thursday morning, and it’s been a crazy few days. A lot of memories from being here before have been coming back to me, although it feels very different. For one thing, being here with Tri is a completely new experience. Before I was here as a student studying abroad, but now I’m part of a Nepali family, which brings its own benefits and challenges. It’s also very different without Tri’s mom around. Her absence is hard to swallow, but we’re getting by.
