It feels like the night before Christmas: I'm excited, nerved up.
Tomorrow I leave for Jumla, a remote district in Nepal's mountain-ey midwest. I'll be there for 6 days to monitor and support IRC's child protection program in the district.
My bag is packed. It includes:
- hiking boots
- diarrhea medicine (!!)
- granola bars
- satellite phone
- iodine tablets
- warm jacket
- rain pants
Shoot, office closing down. Time to go! I expect I'll have stories to share next week, when I return.
Here are some pictures from Jumla. Peter Biro, a communications officer for IRC, took them this spring.
