As we descended through the clouds to land in Kathmandu, it finally hit me that I was going to be here for two months. Not long at all of course, but still... long. What have I gotten myself into? All I needed to do for the bus ride to the hotel was close my eyes and I would be transported to New York, with the incredible amount of horn honking. A polite honking though, just to let you know they are right next to you. It was a bit of a tense ride, but more in awe than anything. So many people in the streets, on bikes, vehicles along with just randomness mixed with so many other elements.
We have a couple days here in Kathmandu then head South for 4 or 5 bumpy hours and see what awaits us at the Bhimphedi and Kogate clinics that we are opening up on Sunday. We have a few days of training and preparation to take care of, but I am very eager to start meeting and treating people. it is surreal to be here though and I cannot wait to see what lies ahead.
