Day 6 – Why you should never forget to…

A joyous and relaxing lie-in! (this is more like a holiday!) And all i was doing today was going to church. That was it! I could finally relax and enjoy myself (pretty much do what i do at home then!)

After managing to drag myself out of bed after my blissful lie-in (mum knows how hard that can be) i toddled off to church, and i really enjoyed it! I have to say, after my experience yesterday in Nepali church, it was nice to be able to understand what was being said and sung. We sang a lot of songs and even sung a few St. James classics! (maybe the Fulfords went here…) I again had to introduce myself to the congregation and managed to say a bit more than “Hi, my name is Ryan” this time and got a big “Woop woop” when i said i’d be teaching at KISC. I felt like my introduction of myself had gone well and i sat down feeling good. That is until i looked down and realised that the entire time i had been at church and when i had stood up…, my flies were undone… (classic mistake i know but come on! First day at church and i do that! God definitely has a sense of humour!) Thankfully no one noticed and i seemed to get away with it but perhaps they were just being nice to the young new guy who had his flies undone.

At the end of the service i met a few people who knew Mark & Liz and one who actually knew my gran! She was part of the family that put her up when she stayed in Kathmandu and we had a good chat (not a God chat dad. Maybe next time)

At lunch time, Bruce made toasted cheese sandwiches which were very nice but not the same as a sunday roast. Then, somehow, the conversation turned to Natalie! (i do not know how it happened, honest!) And soon i was asking questions left, right and centre (mainly coming from the left where Bruce was sitting thought) But thankfully, i survived the interrogation (and also enjoyed tit just in case Nat’s reading!) After the enjoyable lunchtime conversation i decided to make use of the great weather and do some reading and postcards on the roof. It was a lovely quiet afternoon (to be fair, a heard of stampeding Buffalo would have been quiet after staying with the Chadwell’s!) and i enjoyed the relaxing free time i was yet to have had in Nepal. I also took some time out to take a few pictures (make sure Andrew uses those background shots i took for him!) and i was highly amused at the sight of a cow chasing a duck (it was really funny because the duck got so annoyed and the cow was just slowly chasing after it!) Perhaps a, “you had to be there to find it funny” moment.

I then had a lovely dinner with the O’Neills which had meat in (and about time to!) And for pudding we had some Nepali doughnuts given to use and so we tucked into them. They were no way near as good as the doughnuts i had been brought up eating and loving!

After dinner I took my opportunity to hop on the computer and check out what was going on in the sporting world. I smiled to myself as i saw that Chelsea had lost but that smile soon faded when i saw what had happened in the Brazilian Grand Prix. Rubens had got Pole in his home race and Jensen was all the way down in 14th place! (its going to take a Champions drive from him to win it from there) I then quickly found time to reply to a few important emails before i had to head off to bed due to the small matter of it being my first day at school tomorrow and i didn’t really want to be late.

So how has my first week in Nepal gone. Well, at first it was quite hard to believe I was here and i was going to be hear for 10 weeks! Everything was so completely different, strange, new… etc Its was hard to keep myself from emailing home going “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” But, i have managed to get use to these new and different scenarios and experiences and tackle them head on and have found Nepal an amazing place. I mean, before i came i didn’t eat vegetables, know i do (only a small amount though mum and if they are in something!) and i had a slight fear of dogs and now i think their great!

I do occasionally feel  bit alone as i don’t really have any friends or family around me and i am in dyer need of a hug!! But i know that the longer i am here, the more friends i will make and i know that God is always with me and looking out for me as i progress in my journey (and i don’t need to touch wood because i know its true)

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something concerning
    this.
