We had a picnic yesterday to welcome new students and their family at the University of Wyoming organized by Friends of Nepal at UW (FNUW). It was a great get-together with delicious food items prepared by community members. Below is the video from the program. Enjoy the video.
Welcome programs like this one make significant difference specially for those who have just come to foreign land and have started feeling home sick. I remember similar situation when I first came to the USA. Here in Laramie, FNUW organizes welcome events twice a year. One in Fall and second in Winter. I was welcomed "officially" by FNUW in last January. Home sick is reliefed to some extent by meeting Nepalese people, talking in Nepali and eating home made Nepali food.
