Mukesh Bastola
Soka University of America
Salamanca, Spain

I am Mukesh Bastola, a student and a travel enthusiast from Nepal. I am studying International Studies at the Soka University of America, a liberal arts university in Southern California. During my study abroad semester in Salamanca, Spain, I aspire to learn more about the Spanish culture, meet new people, and travel to as many places as possible. Travel for me has always been a great way to learn about the world as well as myself, so I enjoy exploring places beyond major tourist attractions and immersing myself in the local culture. I am beyond excited to see how these couple of months will unfold for me, and I want to make the most out of this opportunity. I document my photos on Instagram: @mukeshcaptures
