What’s it like in a village?

Most of the villages are small. To reach there, you have to do some hiking after taking public transportation like buses. Although dirt roads might have connected the villages with nearby towns or major highways, there might not be the facility of regular transportation. In some ways, life there can be kind of like camping—there’s no hot water for bathing, for instance. Mostly, you will find running water in shared community taps. The toilets are simple ceramic basins set in the ground. (Bring your own TP!)

However, despite their poverty, the people in the villages are very generous and exceedingly friendly. Everyone will make you feel welcome. In particular, the children will be excited to learn English. And the villages are a safe place to stay.
