India is the most humble place on earth. I have learned that no one can fully understand how impoverished a 3rd world country actually is until you experience it. I don’t care what you say. You cannot know how it is until you experience it. So Mom and Dad actually believe me when I say this: You don’t understand how impoverished India is. Everyone is so loving and nice. No one cares about their image or what people think. It is hard for me to understand that practically all the kids we teach live in 1-2 room homes (more like shacks) and probably have never been farther than 2 hours away from their home. The kids from the school look so clean. Even though they bathe in dirty rainwater ponds that have trash in them.
I love it here and I don’t want to come home.
Love you Mom, Dad, and Family. Say “hi” to the little guys for me.
