Well, after years of being away from home and traveling all over the world, I've finally decided to take the step into the world of blogging. As most of you know, I will be spending the next four and a half months teaching English in Nepal. And, as I remain a bit unsure about the communication outlets I will have at my disposal, or frequency at which I will be able to access them, I figured this was the quickest and easiest way to get in touch with those who wish to follow my time there. So here you go. As I said, I really don't know how frequently or thoroughly I will be able to update this but hopefully I can provide at least some small anecdotes regularly enough to provide you all will some sort of insight to my time in Nepal. Enjoy :)

A small note about the concert...

So, the Bryan Adams concert was absolutely amazing. I would honestly see him again (even at western prices). But what made the experience even more incredible was this...I had no idea what a big deal this concert was to Nepal. And not just that the people here totally love him, which they was a big deal on a larger scale. This was the first concert of a western artist in Nepal...EVER. This country has never had any act from outside the eastern world (i.e. there have been a few shows from Nepali, Indian, and Japanese groups, but that's it). So this was a massive moment in Nepali cultural history. And I got to be a part of it. The whole feeling of the crowd and the energy that he brought to the stage was so powerful. Deffinitely "a night to remember...January, to December"


  1. That is just SO COOL!! i am a Bryan Adams fan (i am 44 years old after all so it's my "era" of music) who absolutely respects his musicianship, lyric writing and guitar playing. He is a true artist. And i'm so happy that you got to see him, and what an honour for all, a FIRST for Nepal... that is really really cool, Megan.

  2. I've seen Bryan Adams in concert so many times I've lost count. The very first time was when he was an opening act for some long-forgotten Canadian band in the very early '80's (perhaps '81?) My friends and I thought he totally stole the show. Little did we know then how big he would become. I just love him!
    Another trivia bit, he was the first western artist to play in Vietnam (which he did in 1994)since the end of the war in 1975.
