On Monday we went out to Godavari where I lived as a volunteer. We arrived at the end of the day during a football tournament semifinal. The school is much bigger now with almost 900 students. Only a handful of teachers are still there from when I was teaching, but they all remembered me and were happy to meet Omar. Two of my former students are 'volunteers' back at the school and it was fun to chat with them. Here are a few pics, we will definately spend some time there when we return from trekking. We head out tomorrow for Besisahar and the start of the Annapurna trek.
