I spent two and a half weeks volunteering at Shree Machhapuchhre Higher Secondary School in Bhujrungkhola, Pokhara. It was an amazing experience! Located within the Annapurna Conservation Area, the village and surrounding area are beautiful. Every morning as I walked to the school, I was greeted by the stunning Himalayan peak of Machhapuchhre. My host family was very kind and hospitable. Every morning, my host mother would make tea, usually with fresh milk from the family cow. Meals were delicious, and generally consisted of rice, lentils, and vegetables.
