Oli-otya! We can't believe we're actually in Uganda! It feels so good to reconnect with good friends. We arrived at the Entebbe International Airport at 11:30 pm with a warm welcome from Gilbert, Babaluku, and Scoebo.

Thankful for Everything

I officially became a mama (uncle) of 2 new born boys Ariyan and Bihaan. A lot has been going on in my family setting ever since, a lot of dippers, baby toys and lots of car seats carrying duties for the babies. When there are babies in the house, it definitely adds a lot of... Continue Reading →

“Another One”

Nepal 2017: DAY 1

Adventure Awaits

Flying tomorrow out of JFK. I have so much to share. I started the day with a chat with my cousin Bibek in Nepal who is working very hard. He is trying to buy some paint to paint the classes, managing artists, borrowing tents, etc. Thank you so much Bibek for lending a hand, couldn't... Continue Reading →
