Daal Bhat. Daal = lentils and Bhat = Rice. Daal Bhat is rice with some kind of lentil soup/sauce. I liked it at first. Then I had neutral thoughts about it and now I hate it. Or at least my body hates it. After a few bites I just don’t feel like eating anymore and my bites go slower and slower, until I feel like I either have to stop eating or throw up. I cannot help it! So… at the trainingcenter in Banepa there was Daal Bhat twice a day. Nepali people don’t feel like they’ve had a proper meal without eating Daal Bhat. So Daal Bhat is everywhere. Luckily I have my own kitchen and some nice restaurants around!
A very nice place to go on Saturdays is the Farmers market. This is a small market were people sell western style oriented food. For example: cheese! French pate! Cheesecake! French bread and good fresh cups of filtered coffee. As you might understand: every Saturday the whole expat community of Kathmandu North is present at the Farmers market to either buy or sell food. In the middle there are a bunch of tables in the shade where you can picnic with all the fresh stuff you just bought. An ideal place to meet up with friends for brunch and start the weekend.
So now its only 1,5 week to go before I start working, I don't feel like I am ready for it yet, but will i ever be? I just have to go out there and do it!
