back from India

I returned home to Asheville two weeks ago. After playing what seems like non-stop catch-up, I finally have some time to reflect on my time in India.

Every moment was amazing – I won’t go into great depth today – I am just so excited to finally be able to start uploading photos for you all to see!

Chennai

First time in three weeks on my own.

I am staying in a B&B in Chennai. The caretaker only speaks Tamil and there is a young man helping him with limited English – fun adventure!

This morning I am going to attempt to get on a train to Auroville. I say attempt as I do not have a reservation.

It was a bittersweet parting from my Wholefoods Volunteer Team members – we did so much together and formed a strong bond.

At the same time by yesterday I was chomping at the bit to be on my own and have my own adventures.

We each had a number and would sound off to be sure we were all present – now I am a solitary #13!

Looks like a beautiful day outside – just waiting ’till 7:30 for breakfast and then I am off to visit Colours of Nature!

 

Departing Jodphur

This is my final morning with my Wholefoods Team Members.

We fly to Delhi where we will go our separate ways.

I am off to Chennai to visit Colours of Nature in Auroville. This is an Eco- conscious natural dyeing operation.  I am very eager to meet with the founder and see all that he is doing.

Here is a link to the website

My apologies that there are still no pictures – have not had access to fast internet and so it is not possible to upload pictures.
