I’m an Engineer, not a writer, so I hope the content you find in this blog is intriguing enough to hold your attention. If it does, it’s because this 8-month odyssey is verifiably interesting. I’m extremely lucky to be given this chance to travel to Nepal, stopping on the way in various cities, and work on building a brand new high school, complete with sustainability measures. Right now, the land is a mix of old rice terraces and untouched Nepali jungle, so we truly are starting from the ground up. Who knows how this all will turn out, but the whole experience is about learning, both about myself and the people who will surround me, and figuring out the massive challenges ahead.
