As agreed 6 month ago the follow up trip to Kathmandu started. Main goal is to finalize agreements and prepare all necessary next steps to start our program.
As there is no direct flight from Berlin, a stop over via Istanbul is a good option.We arrived safely in Kathmandu and so did our luggage and many others: families, Nepalis living abroad visiting their families, travelers, business people …. For young hedgehog it was the first trip to Kathmandu.
Arriving at Holi Day is a good way to start a trip. In Nepal – except from some bordering states to India the festival is celebrated on the 01.03. In India a day later.
Holi or the festival of colors is an ancient Hindu religious festival which has become popular with non-Hindus in many parts of South Asia, as well as people of other communities outside Asia.In recent years the festival has spread to parts of Europe and North America as a spring celebration of love, frolic, and colours.
The challenge and sad part of this festival is the use of chemical and dangerous colors. Organic colors are more expensive as we can imagine and therefore artificial colors are used instead. Colors that can cause serious harm 🤨 Never the less we had a good time and love was in the air everywhere in the city. ✌🏼💪🏼🙏
