Southern Hospitality

Being from the great state of South Carolina and doing the majority of my growing up in the South- I know a thing or two about hospitality.  Then I moved to Nepal and I realized that compared to Nepalis the South acts like the North. [ I am just kidding- I know some really nice Yankees]
It doesn’t matter if you are in the capital, the city, or the village.  Nepali people are the warmest and most giving people I have ever met.  On more than one occasion I have shared tea in a store with the owner so he could get to know me.  You don’t even have to buy something- they just want to know you.
Living in the village you are constantly are eating or drinking things- or carrying things home.  Yesterday we went out visiting, we went to four houses and then I went grass cutting with a friend.    After we finished- we had four huge cucumbers, five nashpatis [think apple shaped with a pear consistencies] a packet of cookies, an offer of goat meat, a kilo of daal, I drank tea and ran away from the offer of roti and daal.
Nepalis are literally some of the nicest most hospitapitable people I have ever met-  I hope that I become more like them.  Thinking of others before myself- and sacrificing from my needs for the comfort of others.

About knbohman

I am 25 years old. I work in Charleston. I have a pretty ridiculous imagination. If I were quieter I think I could of been an amazing librarian or museum curator. I love crafting and reading books. If I don't know something, normally I will just make it up and say it with confidence. If I had more courage I could of been a stand-up comedian. I love learning facts and quotes...and one day I will try out for jeopardy.
