3 Days Until India!

We have survived New Zealand and even managed to have some fun towards the end of our time here. Now we have 3 days before we head to India, and we are really excited. We picked up our visas today from the embassy so it’s official! We have a bus back to Auckland tomorrow then we’re flying out to India. We decided to stay in India for a shorter time so we’d have money to do a ton of fun things. We want to do a camel safari in the desert, do some whitewater rafting, and go tiger spotting in a national park, just to name a few. Not to mention all of the ancient temples and forts we’ll be able to see! We’ll also be there for Holi, the Hindu festival that celebrates the beginning of spring. They celebrate by throwing colorful paints at each other. I’m really excited for that! We’ll also be in Dharamsala, the city where the Tibetan government is in exile, for Tibetan New Year. I’m pretty nervous for the first couple days where I’m sure I’ll be a bit culture shocked, but I am really, really excited!

    Hi Thomas,
    Glad you had some fun in New Zealand. Are you still going to be working with Kids in India? Have fun and STAY SAFE!! I think Uncle Tom will be back in India in a few weeks, I think we’ll be farther south maybe near New Dehli.
    Love , Nana

    When you get to India look up my IT guy, I need some work done on my computer. His name is Rama, he lives near the jungle, drives a moped and wears sandals.
    Love, Grandpa.
