India Day 1 & 2

0

Day 1,

In the KL Airport now. 6:00 am in the morning. We were all so exhausted that we slept on a Starbucks floor, got to say that’s a first. Were so close to India now, if it weren’t for the lack of sleep everyone in our group would be buzzing widely with excitement. Nevertheless, I cannot wait to get there. Just one more airplane flight to go…

Day 2,

We are in India now. Everything is simply so amazing. The smells, the colors, the tastes. We got picked up from the airport in a groovy school bus, and went straight to an Indian breakfast.

Needless to say, our first meal in India was wildly successful and delicious. After stuffing our faces with idly, dosa’s, and other delightful delicacies, we hopped on the bus and headed to the Chennai American International School. After showering and cooling off a bit we headed to a market. Even though it was election day, and the market was mostly closed, it was still an exciting experience for our “new to India” eyes. When we were done shopping, we decided to head to the park where we saw a group of very talented boy dancers practicing their routines, a group of woman and their adorable puppy, many interesting trash cans, and very fun, yet torn down play structure. After the park we were all in the mood for more Indian food, so we headed to another restaurant where we stuffed our faces once again with butter chicken, priyani, and more. Let’s just say we more more that just “nice and full” by the time we left and it was time to meet our home stays. We all went our separate ways and had an early night sleep. The ISTA festival was to start in the morning. All in all, my first day in India was absolutely amazing and successful. I cannot wait for what is to come…
