Feedback Detail : Jenzi
I had a wonderful stay with Basu and Puspa and would definitely recommend them! As it was monsoon season there was not a lot of work to do, but they welcomed me in as one of the family! Basu let me help with cooking, and taught me to cook Nepali food and to make paneer! I also got to help a little with feeding the cows, fertilizing the fields, and planting.
I definitely had a little bit of culture shock, mostly with adjusting to a muuuuch slower pace of life than I'm used to. It was such a positive experience though, I was very far outside my comfort zone- spreading cow poop with my hands, the language barrier, huge spiders and creatures and everything unfamiliar- but out of my comfort zone in the best possible way. I felt personally challenged, had my beliefs questioned and re-thought my own life and culture and sense of normalcy. All of that and some farming skills too
Basu and Puspa were very sensitive to my needs, never forced me to work too much, and took care of any minor injuries and blisters I got on my soft city hands They also took me to see some temples and rivers and scenic things in the area. I enjoyed meeting a lot of the neighbors and learning Nepali dancing too! I will always remember my short yet very intense and rich experience in Prembasti
