We had been in Kathmandu for a few days and had finally managed to organize a meeting with one of the directors of the Manasarovar Eduational Foundation, Miss Tsultrim Sangmo, when we heard the news at the hotel that the Maoists had imposed a curfew for the entire day throughout the city.
The more time that went by with different pieces of news, the more angry and distrustful I became. I received confirmation from the director about the truthfulness of the information and we reorganized our meeting and finally, after a lot of waiting, we managed to reach the Manasarovar school.
Finally after a long journey by taxi we saw a lady on the road who was waiting outside a school building: it was Tsultrim Sangmo. You can’t imagine how happy I was to greet her after days of telephone calls and various obstacles.
