Namaste from Bajhang, Chainpur!

Reconnaissance for next Ear Camp.

We arrived here in Chainpur this morning (22/1/2013) at 11 am. We met some ear post op patients from 2009 camp. They are all happy and we are welcome again by them as well as by hospital doctors and staff.

Times have changed, and this means Chainpur too, the road is now good, the hotel also new and much, much better than 2009.

In Chainpur there are two new and big hotels, the first has 12 rooms (1x 2 = 8 and 1×1= 5) with free internet but not any attached bathroom, just a common bathroom and other hotel has 1×2 = 4 and 1×1 = 1, total 5 rooms.

The hospital is much, much better than 2009, it is good. So the camp will definitely be in Chainpur. I will think and plan other logistic things and let you know soon.

Re traveling, I am thinking on Sunday April 7th about 2.30pm you will fly to Nepalgunj arrive at 3.30 in Nepalgunj and same day travel to Bardiya National Park. You will get there around 5pm, stay a night and Monday morning start at 7am to Bajhang. You will get here around 6pm.
