The Team Ramro official Nepal programme is over and the majority of the team are now back in Belfast, catching up with friends, family and sleep and showing off their farmer’s tans and mosquito bites. But 2 team members remain in Nepal for some unfinished business. It’s been all about the heart!

Apologies for the lack of blog action in the last 8 days – we have understandibly been demoted from the much prized ‘featured blog’ spot on the website. But I’m not prepared to give it up completely. We want that gold medal.
There is much to tell, so this will be a long one!

It has been a great weekend. We finished the playground we have been working on and said a sad goodbye to the children from the school on Friday. We are returning there though at the end of our trip to finish up a few bits a pieces and Lynne and Suzie are going to show the nepali women how to use the hydrotherapy pool.
Yesterday we all attended our different churches with our hosts then met up for lunch at a Momo cafe together. It was interesting! We headed to the monkey temple which was fun, saw a good couple of monkey v’s dog fights!

This morning, I was awoken by the enthusiastic strains of a Nepali band who were in full carnival mode. Clearly, the locals were out celebrating the safe arrival of Team Ramro (and their luggage)!
