Udayan & Titagarh

8 February 2017

Today was the last day of our first period of time at Udayan. We return on Sunday for another 3 days.

We taught the children their morning lessons in both English and Bengali. Isabella and Holly taught the children human body parts, Tasha and Sian taught geography, Ethan and James played bingo with the children and Fran and Kate taught animals. This was an extremely rewarding experience for both us and the children.

After lunch, we went to Titagarh, a leper colony near Udayan. It was very humbling as we watched them weave cotton thread and saw where they dyed the thread and grew their crops. As we walked through the buildings the workers and patients greeted us and we had a very interesting talk from an American medical student working and studying at the colony. Titagarh was founded by Mother Teresa and is now run by the Missionaries of Charity Brothers.

This evening, we went to Gaylords (the restaurant at The Lytton Hotel) for a meal. We are now writing this blog in anticipation of our trip to Paras Padma tomorrow.

Ta Ta.
