How was the local Coordinator and the staff and the support provided in-country?
Excellent support from the local coordinator and his family extremely friendly and make my stay here very pleasant.

What was the most surprising thing you experienced while in the program?
No surprises (This was my 10th visit to Nepal) except perhaps that I survived cycling the road      from Thali to Chabahil center where I study (Nepali lessons) each day was an interesting experience.

What was most difficult thing you experienced while in the program?
No difficulties, I set a target of learning Nepal language, other than a self imposed struggle with the Nepali language. This remains a work in progress.

Any tips for future volunteers….(clothing, travel information, packing, sightseeing, donations)
Great location, be prepared for change in lifestyle, surroundings + travel.

Personal paragraph (volunteer program testimonial):
It has been a pleasure, If no little effort, to contribute to the construction and maintenance of community projects in Thali. I hope I have made a small contribution for the small thali community.
