We’re very lucky to have such a calm and cheerful cab driver.   Thank you very much, Lila Regmi for driving us to the children’s homes!  The best driver in Nepal!  As we said, if you can drive in Nepal, you can drive ANYWHERE!

PART 5: VISIT TO PRISONERS ASSISTANCE NEPAL (MARCH 2018)

Our next stop was PA Nepal’s Farm House (Firefly Children Home).  University students and a few caretakers stay in this home and they engage themselves in raising livestock and growing vegetables.

I wish I could grow these flowers in our garden back home!
