"Another amazing day in Nepal. We started by riding in a cab from our hotel to the
Nepal Orthopedic Hospital. The cab was a very small
car - meant for 4 people at most. We crammed in 6. Kathmandu is a city of 5 million people so going from one side of the city to another was a real adventure. The streets are shared by walkers, wheelchairs, bikers, motorbikes, buses, cars, trucks and cows. Cows appear to have the right of way and seem to know it as they are in no hurry, unlike the cab driver. I felt like I was riding in on of those little cars doing the figure 8 race at the demo derby. It was crazy - but I loved it. Just keep your arms in the vehicle even though its hot and muggy (no AC). After lunch, we did more painting at another
orphanage. More kids, more love, more smiling faces, more joy, and more tears as I
count my blessings.
