On assignment in Nepal with F2F

 mapIn my previous post, I said I was headed to Nepal for a couple of weeks for an USAID assignment for the John Ogonowski and Doug Bereuter Farmer-to-Farmer Program, coordinated though Winrock International. My trip here was largely uneventful, and I am now writing this from my hotel room in the Royal Century Hotel in Bharatpur, Nepal (the blue dot above). So far, I’ve traveled quite a but (US to Kathmandu (the red dot), then to Bharatpur), ridden elephants on a jungle safari in Chitwan National Park, eaten lots of authentic Nepalese food, partaken of many beers (Everest, Tuborg and Carlberg), seen numerous research facilities around the Rampur Campus of AFU, and had many great conversation about the culture, ecology, political and socioeconomic issues facing Nepal. I didn’t really realize how far the country has come in the past decade.
I’ve begun teaching R, and while I know I don’t have enough time to teach them everything, I hope that they learn enough to be able to advance independently once I’m gone. That and I hope the power holds up…
