The local village of Thakurdwara and all the smaller villages in the area can be visited just by walking around on your own. You will find everyone very friendly and many of the children will be desperate to practice their English with you. Thakurdwara is about 10 minutes walk from our camp and has a small internet cafe with 5 computers. The connection isn't the fastest but it is easily possible to check your email.
There are also many small stalls selling Pakora, Samosas, Tea and soft drinks.You can also get your hair cut or get a shave. Kali or any of our children can show you around some of the smaller villages near our camp and you can also see inside some of the Tharu homes. This will help you get an insight into how people live in this area, their farming practices and the kinds of domestic animals that people keep. It is also possible to cycle around or just relax and enjoy watching family life.
