This is the road in front of my house. They took out the old road and put in new. Not in Nepal. Not in Bhutan... very different. I liked to watch them work. In the Goldhap refugee camp in Nepal one time they took a roller and rolled down all the houses. There was a fire too. Many people, everyone was crying. Some old people died. Afterwards everyone went in the forest to sleep. I said "oh my god". At night time there were no lights and my house was gone.

This is my neighborhood. I like that they were walking with their bags and stroller. They were probably shopping at the Family Dollar.

Resettlement and Life in the United States: Refugees face many challenges when starting over in a new country. Employment skills and other cultural and social capabilities they had utilized at home may not transfer over, and it is often quite a challenge to start new careers and integrate into a new culture and community. Even basic components of daily life are vastly changed. Adults can find it difficult to have to learn a new language, and often their children will take on an interpretor’s role for their family. While refugees state they like the organization and structure of America, navigating new complex systems such as employment, housing and education can be very difficult on their own.
