Celebration of Nepalese Culture

Tonight Kamud and Sophia opened up their beautiful home to us. Renu, Kamud's mother, cooked us a lovely Nepalese dinner of eggplant, cauliflower and peas, spiced potatoes, basmati rice, dahl, and spicy tomato pickles. Dessert was galub jamun and rice pudding.

Kamud spoke to us about life and culture in Nepal and showed us the beautiful artwork in his home.
