Namaste! We are almost a week back home again after an amazing holiday in the Netherlands, a month seems long, but time flew by.
We stayed on the farm of John & Marieke in Nijkerk with fantastic landscapes, cosy seats en a happy bunch of animals surrounding us.
Our gratitude is massive.. We have enjoyed all the time we were able to spend with friends and family, the lovely food, the clean air, and just… being back in the beautiful Netherlands. How wonderful it was to cuddle our nephews and nieces. We caught ourselves (just like our uncles and aunties in the past) thinking and being amazed they are growing so fast, how well they can chat and how incredibly smart they are. Dear all, thanks for your openness, hospitality and happiness. You’re all welcome in Nepal, so that we can return the favour! 🙂 Not seeing each other for a year is quite long and unfortunately we have not even been able to meet everyone we wanted to meet.
My sweet sister, brother in law and darling Wendy arranged a special party for my 40th birthday (18 years old with 22 years of experience). In summary: it was an incredible valuable time!
Next… back to Nepal!
It’s great to arrive back home in Nepal with an enthusiastic team of Nepali people who all continued the planned activities and more. Medair’s DRR (disaster risk reduction) reconstruction programme goes really smooth. We are even ahead of the planned targets. 183 families are living again in their own new and secure house. Only 1080 to go. We are looking forward to the time to come, where a lot will be happening again.
Below you’ll see a small impression of the encounters we had. Enjoy with us, looking back to great memories. Who knows you might see yourself in the pictures! 🙂
