Hey AA, I couldn't find any other picture of you except this one - so here it goes. Should remind you of your beautiful hometown. For me it reminds of having to stay hungry. I know, I should have just ordered Daal-Bhat-Tarkari (Gundruk) for lunch rather than asking for the "
fancy alien" pasta on cheese sauce!! 🙂
A couple more pictures of that area follows.
Narayani river marking Chitwan-Nawalparasi border.
And a view of a village at the base of the hills in Nawalparasi.
All these pictures were taken in 2003.
And back to another BSAM picture excavation. I found this with the other picture that I posted here. I think we had just returned from a hiking/camping trip to Dhulikhel when this picture was taken. And it reminds me that we (our group - the whole class was divided into 4 groups I think) actually cheated on hiking most of the way by hitching rides on minibuses or on trucks - the leader of our group being the class prefect and obviously quite clever on those matters!!
I think half of these boys are in the army (and probably rest half abroad!), although its hard to stay in touch with most of them. When I think of it, I'm probably in touch (not so regularly but just "in touch") with less than half a dozen! But its always great when I do get in touch with them.
