A hot nice day

And.... breakfast at H.E., children to school.
A warm, sunshiny day, so we went to Fewa Restaurant at the lake, sunbathing, reading, relaxing, discussing how to get everything in our bags and what is coming still.
On the way back to the Internet, but again in the middle of tuesday report powercut, everything lost.
A few last shoppings, and back on our way to school.
I gave the framed picture and the locks to the assistent headmaster, just a few minutes before the children came out of class, so they did not had an opportunity to Tika us again!
Said goodbye to the teacher of the children. He was very sad and said that the children will miss us again enormously. Told him that it is the plan that in January I WILL BE BACK!! if Buddha is with me!
At the home Martin was there. He is from Germany and one of the two big sponsors of the home. He and his wife brought up the money to buy the land for the new home.
We told him that considering goods and materials the children are well covered, that IF they want to do something, it should be sponsoring one of the children and safe the money for building the house.
In our discussion we came up with the idea that Barbara and Pete, the other big sponsor - who will be coming out in the summer for two months - will make a info-book for the volunteers to come. They should know that the home is having materials, the books we bought, the colourpencils locked away and the balls and badmintonsets, etc. When they know this, they can go and use it, as well as trying to get the children to draw new things, not only mountains.
I am sure Barbara and Pete will take care of this.
As soon as I will be home I am planning to make contact with them through email, to tell about my experiences in the home and ideas for the home.
The children are getting aware of us leaving tomorrow.
Monica was glued to me, Sofia is glancing at me from a distance. We told them that we are going to Mamma Mia Pizzeria, which made them very happy, jumping and singing. By leaving Monica jumped in my arms, kissing me all over.
Tomorrow will be a big hugging day, I will try to keep my eyes dry, but can't promisse.!
Diner at H.E. and for our last pancake to TeaTime. A glass of wine, back to the room, trying to finish my book, but sleep was knocking on my door.
We are not sure if there will be Internet in Chitwan. If it is, you will be updated from there, otherwise you will have to wait until we are back in Kathmandu wednesday evening or thursday morning.
Until then, take care, because we care,
