Guiding through the Valley

A couple of days ago, I was sitting in the lawn at my house. I saw an old English woman sitting on a huge stone near my house. I went to her and talked to her. Although my English was not that good she could understand me. I found out that she was a tourist and was going to Balaju.

She was very pleased to meet my family. She also enjoyed Nepali food and said that she was glad to have a taste of a Nepali food. I even offered to go with her as a guide for the day.

I took her to Balaju and some other places nearby. In the evening, I left her at her hotel. She was so pleased with me. She promised to write me letters. It is one of the most memorable incidents of my life.
