My sister Alisha bahini. I say sister because that’s part of Nepali culture, and because I truly do view her, and the other girls at the farm, as my sister. How lucky am I? Compared to Alisha’s family, very. From the first earthquake, of 7.8 magnitude, part of their house was destroyed. Luckily, part is still habitable. The other part was, with part of my help, made monsoon proof today. Lots of rubble had to be moved and tin corrugated roofing was placed over where the second floor used to be. Slow, slow rebuilding process. Strong, resilient, wonderful people. Everyone was working with smiles and laughs, always joking.
