St Patrick’s Day at SIRC

A few photos of what St Patrick’s Day was like at SIRC.

The Tri Colour

Homemade Tri Colour.  I did my best!

And a few of the office folks with their “I’m Nearly Irish” badges in the shape of shamrocks.  As you can tell, it was Craft Night for me in Banepa last night.

And I'm the only one not wearing green - opps!

Having no oven, I made some Chocolate Rice Krispie Cakes, as well as Rocky Road Bars – thanks to Rita for the suggestions :-).  And Nikita made lalmohan (the outrageously sweet deep fried balls) served with – thankfully – unsweetened curd (made by her mum).

About Kate Coffey

After 25+ years in the investment management industry, I packed in my job and spent 2014 living and working in Nepal and Bangladesh, and visited some other places in between. It took me on a journey I did not expect, had me fall in love with Nepal and it's people, and become inspired at the work of Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) located 2 hours east of Kathmandu in the Sanga foothills. Since 2014, I have continued my warm relationship with SIRC and worked closely with my friends there in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes to date. This blog initially started out as a travelogue of sorts to keep friends and family worldwide updated while I was off on my travels in 2014. Since then it has morphed into a life story of the many places I have lived and worked and of the wonderful people I have met along the way. I hope you enjoy.
