The Golden Temple (part 2) and Arrival in Delhi

10 February 2011

Last night we dined at The Crystal and all enjoyed a delicious curry together with our guide.

We returned to the Golden Temple to see “the putting to bed ceremony”. Everyone really enjoyed and it was a very special experience which impressed everyone. We returned to our hotel and all went straight to bed as we had to get up at 3.45 am to catch a train back to Delhi.

This morning was an early start. We caught our train back to Delhi where we checked back into our first hotel. Most of us went to sleep and for the rest of the day we relaxed, took a walk to the market and we enjoyed bonding as a group.

Tomorrow we shall be touring Delhi, Mother Teresa’s Shishu Bhavan, Gandhi’s memorial and cremation sites, the Jama Masjid mosque and the India gate.

We would also like to thank you all for your comments and especially the children at St. John’s for their continued interest in the trip.

Big hugs and kisses to everyone.

Really enjoyed reading about what you’ve been doing. It all looks really fun (except the 3.45 am train!)
Good to see Shaunagh doesnt look burnt to a crisp already.

Have fun, be safe, see you soon

Looks like you’re having an awesome time, I’m so jealous, I miss India – all the noises and smells. Looking forward to the blog after Udayan will be lovely to see photos of all the children, to see how they’ve grown. Hope you’re all enjoying it xx
