As soon as I landed, I remembered. I remembered how magical Nepal is. I love the questions, the chaos, the beauty, the serenity of the people.
The immigration agent looked at my application for entry. “What is this Human Resources you say you do?” he asked in response to my answer for occupation. I smiled. “I hire people, and train them, and sometimes fire them.” “For which company you do this?” “It’s called Room to Read – we build schools and libraries.” He harrumphed and waved me through.
The hotel manager’s face lit up when he saw me. “Namaste! I thought I would never see you again!” I laughed. “Sometimes the world brings us surprises. I am back so soon.”
And so happy to be here.
