Five days already!

My presentation was pitched perfectly and went extremely well... that's because I was the only one there! This, apparently, is the norm as people are too busy having dinner or going to bed early to come to a talk, so I didn't take it personally.

Today I have 3 Wellness Advisors (I've seen one this morning, the other 2 this afternoon), so that's good, but what's even better is that I actually have a client who has booked to see me in the next day or two. Hooray!

I don't want to tempt fate, but one of the things I'm very pleased about is that in the five days I've been here I haven't had a mosquito bite and my tube of Anthisan is as yet unused. This, I think, is a first for me as usually by the end of the very first day I've got one or two.

It's hard to believe that I've been here almost a week already. It's actually very scary. I don't want to wish my time away, but in some ways it means it won't be so long before I'll be able to be a holiday maker rather than a worker and can wear what I like e.g. shorts/vest tops. Here my clothing has to denote my professional status, so contrary to the way I usually dress when I'm away I actually look quite grown-up and conservative. I think that's another first!

I hope you all have a very jolly Easter.


  1. Shame about the presentation but doesn't seem to be a problem if it's the norm and I guess the temptation for food is quite strong. Great about having people to see and great about not being bitten, there must be tastier meat around :) Grown-up I can just about handle but conservative, I don't know!

    1. I know re conservative... it's freaking me out slightly... but don't worry, by the time I get to Kathmandu normal service will be resumed!
