A day with the Little Sisters

9 February 2009

This morning we were driven in lots of Tuc-tucs to the home of the Little Sisters of Jesus, next to the Ganges. Here we were able to have mass with the Sisters in their chapel. It was a delightful service and we were honoured to be able to participate.

The Sisters had prepared a vast breakfast containing home-made delicious cake, eggs, toast and chai. During breakfast we all felt very welcomed as the Sisters sat down and spoke to us all. They invited us up onto their roof terrace which had one of the most beautiful views we had all seen.

After we left, we took a walk through the streets of Varanasi and we were driven in Tuc-tucs again to the hotel. Tuc-tucs are very wild, they race through the streets of Varanasi and the Highway Code is not applicable!

We then got ready to leave the hotel in preparation for our long train journey. The train was delayed by 3 hours and 15 minutes, so at 20.15pm we finally got on the train. Our guide showed us all individually where our beds were as we settled in for a bumpy night.
