Katie arrives at her school in Tolka

Katie is formally welcomed to her Himalayan village.

Katie Robertson arrived in her new school yesterday afternoon.  She was greeted by several of the teachers and others in her village.  The flower malas and red tikka on her face is a traditional greeting in Nepal's Himalayan villages.  Katie looks so happy as she starts her new adventure.  Just remember to keep your eyes open to embrace the beauty around you, Katie!
