Thanks everyone, for checking back and leaving such nice comments!
That last few days have been awesome! We went the upper part of Dharamsala where it is predominantly Tibet people. The market was incredible! I wanted to buy everything. I spent a pretty-penny on a BEAUTIFUL hand-painted tapestry and some woodcarvings. I haven’t had a chance to upload my photos of the market yet, but I will soon.
Yesterday, we went to the market in the lower part of Dharamsala. Which is where the home base is located. A few of us girls had to get more traditional Indian clothes. You can have them made for close to nothing. I’m picking them up next week. I’ll be sure to post a photo. I’m also planning on having a custom made dress and possibly a suit while I’m here.
We had to work today (Saturday) because we didn’t start working until Tuesday, and we needed to fulfill the five-day workweek. So for us three-weeker’s next weekend is the only free weekend so a few of us decided to leave right after lunch and head to Amritsar to the Golden Temple and to see the changing of the guard. I’m excited. It’s about a 6-hour taxi ride there. We’ll get dinner and check into our hotel and tomorrow we’ll go see the temple and the guard. So I wanted to update and let everyone know I wont be able to Blog again until Monday (my time, so Sunday in America.) I’ll most definitely take lots of photos and post when I get back!
Again, that’s for checking back!
My mom brought it to my attention that she didn’t really know what it was I’ve been doing in the day care with the kids. We’re teaching them the English alphabet, numbers and colors…we also color, play games and sing songs. It’s a blast!
