It has been an island of peace and complete tranquillity in an otherwise bustling country. It took a week for me to begin calling it “home” and to tell each other “I can’t wait to get home” while out and about on weekends.
Working with the children themselves has been just as good. Watching them grow and learn, and the progress that I have helped them achieve has been a fantastic experience. I wouldn’t give it up for anything.
On our weekends, we travelled widely throughout India to Rishikesh, Haridwar and Jaipur, experiencing only a tiny part of what India has to offer, but a wonderful part none-the-less.
I will return to Raphael in time and in the interim, I be sending everyone I know from Australia to experience it for themselves.
