Good night from India

23 February 2011

So now we finally conclude our amazing two and half weeks in India. We have had a fantastic time and each and every one of us will be coming back with hundreds of memories which we can’t wait to tell all of you. From the beautiful Golden Temple in Amritsar to the very special times we shared with children at Udayan and Asha Bhavan. Today in Kolkata we were treated not only to a lie in, but then a very relaxed day to take in as much as possible of this breathtaking place, not to mention a spot of last minute shopping in the local markets. Now we are waiting to leave for our flights home and are very much looking forward to seeing all of our loved ones.

Finally we would like to make special thanks to everyone, from teachers to parents and friends, who have helped to make this trip possible and have supported us over the last year or so. We would also like to express our appreciation to everybody who has followed our progress on the blog and left us so many messages which we have thoroughly enjoyed reading every night.

We would like to place particular thanks to Caroline and Kathryn for giving us the opportunity to come on the trip that we have all found so rewarding and experience the wonders of India, you both have ensured the success of the trip and have been wonderful travelling companions too. Weldon, we salute you! Secondly, thank you to Chris who has not only ensured we can communicate with you all via this blog but has been a caring figure who we have all enjoyed getting to know. Finally our thanks go to Beverley and Myra for their support and company on the trip we hope they have enjoyed our company as much as we have enjoyed theirs.

This concludes St Joan of Arc’s 4th trip to Udayan, we hope you have enjoyed following us and with that we say; good night and god bless from India. :)

I’ve been away with a friend and it is only today that I’ve been able to read right through about your trip. Delighted that it went so well and that we saw so many wonderful people and places; good to see Fr James looking well too! All the best, Juliet Chaplin
