LSE and Back to Asia

I am typing on a french keyboard right now and it is super slow, so I will make this short.

I had an amazing time exploring LSE, the place I hope to go for grad school. I really like their social policy program, and after talking to someone at the student recruitment office, it really seems that I have a good shot at going there. According to him, LSE only accepts people that are really passionate about their subject matter, so I feel that it would be a great environment for me. It is a lot more independent work than I think Americans are used to, but I have an advantage because of the alternative education school I go to. The man I met with seemed generally impressed with what I was doing for my undergrad, so I hope that if/when I apply, they will see me as a unique individual who can bring a lot to their program.
Also, the bookstore at LSE is AMAZING. There were shelves and shelves of books on development, and I spent the whole morning drooling over them. If these are going to be the books I would be reading for classes, then I think I would do very well at LSE.

I am having a fabulous time in London with my cousin Elise, who I get along very well with. I am so glad I got to see her because I rarely do. She is such a strong person, incredibly intelligent, rational, and down-to-earth, while also having a hilarious sense of humor. I have enjoyed my time in London SO much and I am excited to live here if I go to grad school at LSE.

Tonight I leave for Nepal and go back to Asia. I am ready to go. Europe was an amazing experience, and I know I will find my way back here. But I am ready to go back to Asia, to Nepal, to Bangladesh, to India, to hear Hindi being spoken again, to rickshaws, paan, motorbikes, cows ambling all over the streets- the beautiful chaotic mess of Asia that I have come to love and cherish with all of my heart.

See you there friends,

Mr. Pokhrel, I am ssirrpued that your studies of Cambodia (or Kampuchea) under the Khymer Rouge didn’t give you a better grasp of their proper spelling.
