If there is one thing we have learned in Nepal it is the importance of tea. You can not have a meeting without tea. You can not have a snack (kajaa) without tea. Breakfast is tea. And if you want to socialize, then go and drink tea. There are many types of tea, but the most common is milk tea with A LOT of sugar.
When it comes to food, we really miss our Norwegian brown bread. We have found that “roti” is the most similar. So almost every day we eat 5 rotis and vegetables for lunch in the same shop. The couple working there are always welcoming us with a big smile and we try to communicate with them in the little Nepali we know.
