The farewells have already started and I will miss them all for sure. This morning after yet another scrumptious breakfast made by Rina, I presented Lok, his wife Krishna Maya and chef extraordinaire Rina, with a few gifts in appreciation for how welcome they made me feel in their home. They in turn had prepared a blessing for me, complete with Ganesh lamp, tika, flower and kata. I was touched.
How nice too that Robin my yoga instructor also turned up to say farewell, as did a few others I knew from the street. And of course the kids who practice their English as I walk down to the bus also turned out. So a nice farewell from Banepa!
