ohhh myyyy gossshhhh!!! can life get any better? I think not. I am in heaven here. Which is crazy since I havn’t showered for 2 days, I’m covered in dirt, and I’m staying in a land full of spiders. But the kids make it all worth it. Today after waking up from a deep tylonal pm induced sleep and enjoying some amazing scones (they are scones I don’t care what anyone else says) we had a long car ride then a 15 min steep hike to the top of a mountain where there was a school full of 50ish kids waiting for us. Just seeing there smiles made me forget all the gross conditions. Then they came through and touched all of our feet and said namaste. It was so sweet. The lessons went really good from the very start, the kids were really coorperative and could actually read english!! it was so much fun to the play the games and teach them songs. The funniest part was when Kendrick taught Rinku (the four year old cutie who sang hindi songs to me while he sat on my lap) how to tickle me. So Kendrick would say get her, and Rinku would run up and tickle me, then run away laughing hysterically until he did it again and again. By the end all of the kids were completely warmed up and were playing around with us like they’d known us forever. Saying bye was so hard. I cannot wait for tomorrow. I don’t ever want to leave.
