Happy Independence Day

Today is Independence Day in my native country. My Embassy, which I pay taxes to support, will not allow me to come to their festivities. Happy 4th of July to you.

Today is also the last day of my contract at Sewalanka. I told them I'm willing to stay the month of July, but now they are saying things like, "we need to check with Chairman." So now they expect me to show up on Monday to see if they will bless me with a contract extension for one month. No skin of my teeth if they say no -- just means more time in Nepal.

I wish I'd gone to Nepal when I was still in Asia earlier this year...one of the students in my program was from there. Looking forward to your photos from there.

Why won't the Embassy let you go to 4th festivities??
