Our Nepal Children

Something as simple as grocery shopping is a community event in Nepal. There are some grocery stores in town but they are expensive and cater more to the expat and tourist in the city. Meal preparation requires a trip to one of the markets everyday for rice and vegetables and another trip to the butchers. It can take several hours just to prepare a simple meal. Most of the meals for the kids are made up of rice, vegetables and occasionally some meat. On one of our trips to Nepal, we provided some sodas to the children. Their reactions were very funny because they had never tried and soda and they did not enjoy it.
