December 2016

When you are abroad living away from family, you realize the importance of your loved ones.  When you are so stressed at times with school and work, you miss the chill-ax life you had back home. When you do not have time to cook, you miss mom’s handmade spicy chicken. The best moments are always found when friends and family gather around.

I went to Nepal over the winter break after almost three years staying in United States.
When I realized that I had only one month to spend in Nepal I had to rush, rush to make this trip worth as much as possible. I wanted travel, eat all the food that I was craving for, spend time with friends and family but the time period was very limited. I used to wake up everyday with a motive on how will I make this day productive.

Reading all this is boring so here are some pictures expressing my stay in Nepal.
