Creative Writing 101

It was a dark and stormy night … wait that is another story (or a classic writing prompt). It was a sunny, albeit somewhat cold, January day in Kathmandu when I volunteered to assist with a literature class as part of a two-week winter camp being held at the Chelsea Education Center. The teacher was going over essay writing, and I assisted where asked. Then, on day three of the camp, the teacher pulled me aside and explained that he had some other commitments arise, and could I take over teaching the class?


Teaching in Pokhara

I spent two and a half weeks volunteering at Shree Machhapuchhre Higher Secondary School in Bhujrungkhola, Pokhara. It was an amazing experience! Located within the Annapurna Conservation Area, the village and surrounding area are beautiful. Every morning as I walked to the school, I was greeted by the stunning Himalayan peak of Machhapuchhre. My host family was very kind and hospitable. Every morning, my host mother would make tea, usually with fresh milk from the family cow. Meals were delicious, and generally consisted of rice, lentils, and vegetables.
