My time living in the Internship Nepal Home was one of the best of my life. I worked with Internship Nepal coordinators to help me adjust with my photojournalism internship at the Kathmandu Post. Ram was able to help me find local events to photograph for the paper, and traveling by motorbike didn’t hurt either.
Living at the home I was exposed to so many different people from all over the world. All of the interns really become close friends by the time we leave to head home, and saying goodbye to Shila our host mom is always the tear-jerking part. Internship Nepal provided me a great home base to enjoy while working for the Kathmandu Post.
I looked forward to returning home each night to nights on the roof together or a walk into Thamel. More than anything in the entire country I miss being a member of that family in that house. If you are looking to find a way to belong in Nepal, even just for a short while, Internship Nepal has a wonderful home-life waiting for you.
