Learning how to plant rice at the Nagarkot Community Homestay in Nepal.
Lovely post, Ila! Must have been a wonderful experience!
What a wonderful local experience
What a beautiful post!
As many of you know, I did a ten-day trip to Nepal with my mother just last year (covered in issues #19, #20, and #21 of this newsletter)
No Ila, we don’t know anything about this trip or the post that was to follow. The one not by you. Nope. I don’t remember it.
The day starts with pooja, after which the community members head to the paddy fields where they start planting rice, all the while singing and dancing to Nepali folk songs.
You cannot just leave this casually. Did you record the songs? Your options are a) Yes b) Yes
Aloo ka achar
What. Is. Aloo. Ka. Achaar? Was it spicy?
It is so much fun to read but my God the first pic of this post. It will not leave me. Just the framing and that setting. I wouldn’t have seen it if it were not for this post. So I guess ‘thank you’ is appropriate.
Thank you again Ila.
