Nepal2012 Ganesh takes us Home

Ganesh took us to his home and introduced us to his entire family. On the upper floor lives Ganesh, wife Maia, their 3 children, and Ganesh's mother and father. On the main floor this family plus Ganesh's brother Ashok with his wife and 3 children all eat and spend family time together. 

The home fire is in the middle of the room - used for cooking and heating. There is no chimney and suprisingly little smoke as they burn only very hard and dry wood. Their home is new and has a metal roof which is a feature only afforded by people with some money. Maia served us a plate of boiled potatoes as a special treat to us. We were genuinely honoured to be invited into Ganesh's home and family.
