I am very lucky i choose Pushpa and her family to host me. She is very kind and thoughtful. My stay in her place was one of the best experiences i ever had. They made me feel like i was part of their family from the first day. I strongly recommend anyone who wants to visit Nepal if they want a friendly family environment to contact her. Also her husband is a very good dog trainer and he can give some useful advise about dogs if you are interested.
Thank you again for everything Pushpa (and your family). Now I can cook nepalese food and I can almost train a dog ! I will probably come back very soon. I wish you to remember your dreams and to take hollydays sometimes (in France for exemple).
Pushpa and her family are AMAZING. Could not have felt more welcome. I want to thank her for making my first Homestay experience so lovely.
