Putha Hiunchuli Expedition- Sept 2016 dispatch #5

8th Sept 2016

This morning Dorje and his team with all our luggage/ gears were on the flight to Juphal, but the flight had to turn around due to strong winds. So it was a disappointing day for us. Nevertheless, we explored the village and took some pics of the beautiful people.
Today the village celebrated education day and a huge procession of the school children walked through the village with the slogan “Girls and Boys are equal and they should have equal right to education. It was an awareness program about the importance of education for both girls and boys.

“Girls and boys are equal”.. “Equal rights to education for girls and boys”… was the slogan of the procession of the education day! That’s the way to go! And it seemed everyone in the village supported it ?

Happy faces… it brightened us up!

In the evening there was a wedding party at our campsite. It was a huge feast with about 500 to 600 guests. There were a lot of dancing and singing in the evening.

So we are keeping our fingers crossed that there will be flight tomorrow and our staff and luggage arrive Juphal.

It was a wonderful evening with the dances and we were offered the wedding feast as well even though we were just travelers ? That’s what Nepal is about!!!
