The Dashain Festival in Nepal is about to start. It lasts for two weeks but our kids have a month long holiday. So many of them go back to their villages to visit their families. Puja has not been in two years so she is excited. We had a special Dashain Festival dinner at the Cake Bakery, a Nepal chain restaurant that hires deaf and disabled staff and has great food, for the kids who live at the group home located on the first floor of the BSF office in the Sukedhara neighborhood. We then went shopping at Bhat Bhetani market. It is a long ride back by bus and you can’t go home without gifts of chocolates!
