First day in Kullu and condition of orphanage.

Have you ever been in an intense business meeting where people are yelling and you want get in on the fight? But they are all speaking a different language and you have no idea what is going so you just sit there? Then some one asks you a question and you try and act like you know what you are talking about, after you finish speaking you are greeted with blank stares, silence, and the yelling continues for 3 hours? Well it was a first for me today.

After arriving to Kullu and sitting in meetings discussing how we would obtain the children and a few financial things. We were able to check out the new orphanage witch at one point was a medical store. We have modified it to house 12 to 13 children. The facility looks great there is a big room for the boys with 4 bunk beds and a single bed and then a room for the girls which has 3 little beds. The building is cozy; It looks like a little cottage you would see in the country. The kitchen is a separate building no bigger than a small walk in closet, and the bathroom is still in the process of being built, it will have 2 toilets and 2 showers. There is a good sized yard to play in and the whole surrounding is gated in. Now we just have to fill it with the children.
