Through a whirlwind of travel, jetlag, a strange hotel room, and loony cab rides, I finally found myself at my new home in Satdobato. The mountains are wild, the city is bustling, and the nights are cool and filled with the sounds of dogs barking.  I felt nervous, happy, excited, scared, homesick, adventurous; a true hurricane of emotions. With the encouragement of family and friends I was able to concentrate my energy on only the power of good. From these feelings and from my experience with local Nepalese people I have started an exploration of happiness and meditation.
