Solidarity Nepal Project 2020-2019-2018-2017-2016

In March of 2015 I went to Nepal for the first time, I thought  spent some weeks to visit the country, finally  I was 90 days. I spent the most of the time on the highest mountains in the world, specifically in Muktinath 3.800 altitude meters, a small town where many tourists who trekking the Annapurnas and also many Hindu pilgrims who come to venerate his deity Vishnu in the temple, visited in this place.

I was leaving at Dream Home Hotel where I met a local family who run the hotel with Maytreya, a Ukrainian man who rents this hotel.

There was a big mix of cultures and I was there,  a girl from Zaragoza who every day that passed was falling more and more in Love with the country, with the local  people and with the princess of the house, Pirti, the younger daughter of Palchom & Hanuman.

The Nepalese couple who helped in the hotel in exchange for accommodation, food and a small salary and the connection with Pirti, her parents and  Maytreya grew older. I was not a  simple tourist who decided to stay on the highest peaks in the world for a while to have the experience of this life. There were many experiences and learnings that I took with me for the resto of my life.

In Nepal most of the children who live in the mountains go to boarding schools from a very young age, becase the schools are long distances from their homes. The mother of Pirti told me that they could not to pay the school for  Pirti. Immediately I got to work and in less than a week I got 900€ through a campaign in social networks in a difficult weather conditions!!!

It was really exciting to receive such support from many people.

At the beginning of 2017 we sent a second time 900 € to pay the school again.

Last April I came back to Muktinath Dream Home Hotel and I spent 3 weeks living with them and also with Pirti, the princess of the house.

Again my heart was filled with great experiences and I was treated as one more member of the family.

Big Thanks to all the people who contributed with your little bit of sand in this project.

At the beginning of 2018 we sent for the second time 900 € to pay the school.

At the beginning of 2019 we sent 900 € to pay the school.

At the beinning of 2020 we will sent 900 € to pay the school again.

Making a recipe is an act of love

I offer services in the kitchen to yoga and meditation groups, families and friends, who really like to take care of themselves with a healthy vegetarian, vegan, raw, gluten-free, sugar-free diet, without preservatives, dyes and additives.

The experience of life in the kitchen with some culinary notions, allow me to offer simple recipes today through a healthy and natural diet, using mostly local and seasonal organic products, along with the most important ingredients, Awareness and Love.

Creative salads, healthy breakfasts, vegetable pates, fresh juices, smoothies, creams and soups for winter and summer, whole grains and pasta, legumes, vegetable proteins (tofu, seitan, temphe) and natural desserts.

Thanks to great culinary alchemists who have transmitted their great passion in the kitchen along with a healthy lifestyle, nowadays I consider that feeding in a natural way respecting the rhythms of nature and its cycles, can be the best medicine for the Self healing through certain foods.

Nepal Experience 2018

In a few days we come back to Nepal.

We will see what happend, it´s possible to go up to the highest mountain and snowy peaks in Muktinath, the village of Pirti and her family.

Big adventures, new knowledge and many emotions are coming to us. We will keep in touch.

January 16th 2018: After more than 24 hours of travel, 4 airports and 4 different planes (Bcna-Istanbul-Dubai-Kathmandu), I arrived safely, and little tired.

The spectacular view of the Himalayas from the plane filled me with immense emotion.

The final trip took place at the airport in Kathmandu, the forces are already low, and you go and you find big lines to perform visa procedures, once you have finished filling all the data something does not work and you have to repeat everything the process because the machine got caught.

You also find that all the passengers who arrive have to pass through a metal control, where there is only one tape and two people who control it, imagine, it was crazy!!!

Anyway, this is Asia, those of you who have been maybe understand me better, here we are constantly working on patience and acceptance of each situation with a big smile and we learn non-complaint, something that in the West life we tend to sadly incorporate it more and more into our day to day.

I say goodbye from Boudhanat area, where the hotel is, just 5 minutes from one of the most charismatic and energetic places in the city, the Buddhist neighborhood. This morning I went to see this living spectacle of hundreds of people surrounding the big stupa, humming mantras, doing prostrations, counting accounts with the mala. This is a real symbol of peace and devotion that goes deep inside you.

Be happy, dont complaint!

Boudhanath Square

 

January 22th 2018: We say bye bye to the chaotic and fascinating city of Kathmandu. A place that leaves its mark, perhaps, because of the intense and beautiful experiences we have lived in it, visiting at sunset the oldest Hindu temple in Nepal dedicated to the God Shiva “Pashupathinat” and his crematories on the banks of the Bagmati River, we were fascinated by the ancient kingdom of Patan, just a few kilometers from the city of Kathmandu, a place that falls in love and transports you to another time, and finally, the big and crazy local market New Road a great explosion of colors and movement, and the popular Thamel neighborhood, for me perhaps the most touristy and least charming area of the city.

In a few days if the weather is good and it seems that yes, we begin to go to the highest mountains.

February 9th 2018: Almost three weeks in the high peaks of the Himalayas, sharing with Pirti, rest of family and friends days of joy and new experiences that have filled our hearts leaving us an immense mark of gratitude and love for this time.


Pirti and her sister Priya are on school holidays these time, so we could enjoy their company most of the days we spent in Muktinath.

Universe had made me a pleasant surprise, 6 days of retreat in a Buddhist monastery with 5 nuns. An experience of the most austerity, simple and beautiful way.  A time where I could recover physically, due to a big cold that took hold of me and the harsh conditions of the trip, and reconnected with the practice of Yoga & Meditation & Silence. A real gift to spend this time in this place on the planet, full of peace.
