Chicken Coupe

I live in a chicken coop. At first I thought I would never sleep. Now I sleep over 10 hours every night. My homestay family speaks no English. At first I felt lonely, scared and uncomfortable. Now I feel like I am a part of the family. I have a mom (ama) a dad (Bbaa) a little sister (bahini) and a baby brother (bi). A little part of me will forever be in the rural village of Chokati Nepal. A place I can now comfortably call Home.
