A Day in the Life

7 February 2017

Today was our first full day at Udayan. We awoke to the local Mosque’s call to prayer at 5am to and went to join the children for their morning prayer. We then discovered that we were an hour too early!

After finally beginning the day with the children and eating breakfast, followed by their private study, we then walked with some of the children to the local Bengali-language schools. Some of us rode on bikes – a very common way of travel in India.

Today we again made more animal friends such as Eddie Lizard – resident reptile in the boys bathroom.

After lunch, the older girls who are on study leave before their exams, plaited Holly and Sian’s hair immaculately. They then taught us the rules of kabbadi – a game which is like a combination of rugby, bull dog and WWE wrestling. The other half of the group were walking to collect the Bengali girls from school.

Later on we disrupted the evening study session to chat to the older kids. We talked about the foods we both eat and the houses we live in. We also took many selfies which they very much enjoyed. By then it was time for dinner, which was delicious again and that brings us to the writing of this post.

Ta Ta.
