After meeting with the school teachers late into the night we decided to stay at our friend’s house to avoid a half hour walk in the dark. In the morning I woke up with a terrible pain in my back and could hardly walk. I thought it would go away after moving around but unfortunately it stayed for another 3 days.

After a big plate of dal bhat we went to Rohit’s uncle’s house to prepare the second computer to donate to another school. I added the educational videos that I had collected in the Netherlands and a few natural history documentaries. Because there is no proper internet in this village and only an intermittent telephone signal it was hard to install everything needed.

During the day we helped to harvest corn. In the evening we met with Vishnu who works for The Asian Heritage Foundation Nepal (AHFN). We discussed the health projects we would like to collaborate on with Necha Community Hospital (which is supported by AHFN). He was very positive about our first aid project and we agreed that we would discuss the proposed joint project further with AHFN chairman Nilam Bastola the next day.
