In this blog entry I want to list 15 points, describing the usual living conditions in Nepal.
In our eyes you would describe the people of Nepal as tough! And they have to be to stick it out here. It is amazing in what conditions the children grow up - but still, they grow up. For a Western person often unthinkable, these are the things a Nepali has to face every day:
- No running water in most places. Unless you are in a hotel or a business office, chances are you have no running water. You get your water every morning either from your own well or from a public well.
- No toilets. As most of you know, all you get in the majority of places, even some restaurants, is a hole in the ground! All I want to say to this point: I wish I were a guy!
- No clean air. Since I arrived here on the 12th of February I feel constantly sick and about to vomit. I am not kidding; the air is so toxic just the thought of it makes my stomach sick. And actually seeing how the trash is burned at every street corner doesn’t make it much better.
