A reader commented on the Expat Report Culture Shock in Kathmandu, Nepal
Culture-Shock-in-Kathmandu
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
Take some time before you go to read about Hinduism and Buddhism - especially the former, as it is the majority religion, and the taboos and the orthodoxy of observance are much stronger than the latter. Tibetan Buddhists, by comparison, are far more lenient and understanding. Newari Buddhists are a different thing altogether. (Continue)

Good answers. I laughed when you said everyone asking if you can get them a visa. HAHHAHA that happens constantly The frustration is a big issue here. The way things are done in business and many things are so obviously not a good way and could be much easier with simple changes that Nepalese will not change. Examples like buying food and having no where to sit and no garbage cans or constantly trying to over charge people because they are white. Poor education and fear of change I think cause this along with malnutrition. It is hard to not get frustrated or angry. Thanks for the laugh :)

Remember, it's not "our" country. I wouldn't criticize how Nepalis do business. It's how they do business. We can adapt, or not.

Expat Report Info about Volunteering to Learn in Kathmandu, Nepal was published
Info-about-Kathmandu
Describe your group.
Volunteering to Learn is a non-profit, non-governmental organization providing rich volunteer and learning experiences in Nepal. So far, we’ve served the interests of more than one hundred volunteers from various countries.

Our goal is to provide volunteering opportunities in Nepal that make it possible for both hosts and visitors to learn. Volunteers gain a sense of satisfaction from contributing to Nepalese communities, but they also learn language and gain insights into culture, ecology, history and geography. Host families and communities benefit from enthusiastic helpers, teachers, and organizers, but they also learn about diverse cultures and perspectives that help them see beyond stereotypes.

Whatever your interests – language, culture, economics, agriculture, forestry, flora and fauna, history, sustainability, appropriate technology, community organization, leadership, entrepeneurship, children, women, human rights – we can place you with organizations, communities and families that will enrich your understanding of Nepal while also giving you opportunities to learn more specific skills and knowledge.
