Leaving Lok’s

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!

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.
