Snow Capped Peaks

Thursday 10 April 2014

This morning after another wonderful breakfast on the terrace of the hotel, we travelled up winding mountainous roads with spectacular scenery of the high snow–capped Himalayas, to Kaplani High School

There we were warmly greeted by the children and teachers. We watched an inspiring and thought provoking drama which highlighted the inequalities between men and women, followed by a second one which showed how family life could be improved for all members by a change of attitudes.

The children were then divided into groups. While some had dental and health check– ups, other groups had fun activities to reinforce dental hygiene and healthy eatingas well as related craft, songs and games.  The highlight for me was when we were treated to an impromptu concert by some of the children whose dancing and singing skills were truly amazing. It was a privilege to work with such warm, considerate and appreciative children.

Before our return to the hotel and yet another evening meal under the stars, we visited The Himalayan Weavers, a cottage industry using only natural dyes, where many of us bought some of the beautiful scarves and shawls sold there. Yet another incredible day!
