Hetauda wheelchair distribution trip Feb. 2014

The Mendenhalls invited us to go on a wheelchair distribution to the southwest of Kathmandu, to Hetauda. New countryside to see and feel the gratefulness in the recipients lives to receive a wheelchair and have mobility. It was a very rewarding trip.

Hauling wood and food for the goats. There are some strong
women here. They work hard.
A special Hindu day where they have to carry water to a specific
place and pour it in the river. Don't imagine I'll be able to learn
about all of the Hindu rituals. Too many.
pony cart that we had a ride in.

also given a nice blanket.

It's a pretty tight squeeze. Just close your eyes.
We stopped to buy some carrots. They have really good carrots,
very sweet. Also had some fresh squeezed carrot juice.
It was good too. Notice the scale they use to weigh the carrots.
