I am not even sure where to begin.  This is my third time back and every time is so different and an all around adventure.  Leading up to India I forget how much I love it here and the feeling I get that is so different and rewarding.  The things that YMAD and the group of college students do for these little kids is unreal.  So far we have made it here and taught four days in Jibhi.  The girls in Jibhi were absolutely amazing, they all walked to the camp from neighboring villages just to be taught by us for 4 days.  I could go on forever on experiences and adventures we have gone on but I am just going to share a few.  One of my favorite stories so far is about a girl named Muskan who is full of Sass.  During some of the down time I was teasing her and said Muskan you are very Sassy and she responds no Spenny you Sexy, obviously miss pronouncing sassy.  Liz and I looked at each other and laughed and we didn’t know quite what to do.  I thought it was pretty funny.  Another story comes right before we were heading to bed in the mud hut in which the boys were staying in…  I was laying in bed writing in my journal when Nick and Josh came in, after a few seconds they start screaming freaking out.  So naturally I get out of bed to see what was so scary, THE BIGGEST SPIDER you have ever seen!!  It was a spider you only see on TV, It was as big as a small plate!  After 5 minutes of just screaming like girls we devise a plan to kill it and then for some reason josh wants to catch it. So when Josh tried to catch it, it runs away under a blanket, so we move the blanket and a RAT runs underneath the door!! WE FREAKED OUT!!  After this we all lost it and nick couldn’t sleep without a bug net so I let him cuddle up in mine.  It was such a tight squeeze but it was definitely necessary!! DCIM100GOPRO
