The Last Day
Hi, everyone! It's Sophie and Gabby here to tell you all about our last day in India. This morning we enjoyed our last breakfast at the Buddhist Center. As always, it an absolutely delectable breakfast of toast, an omelete, fresh fruit and a steaming cup of Chai. Afterwards, we all sat down and debriefed our entire trip and what we were to expect when coming home. All of us agreed that our experience here was incredible and desire to take action on the issues we encountered.
After our discussion, we headed to the amazing Janpath Disctrict. Why is it amazing you ask? Well, because shopping is all we did. Some of us emptied our wallets in the first hour we were there. While others shopped till they dropped. But we (the Sophomores) happened to have fallen in the first category and had another two hours to spare. So, what did we do? We spent our time in an air-conditioned McDonalds and shared a nice chocolate dipped ice cream cone. Unfortunately, after a little over an hour, we were kicked out for playing cards and probably loitering.
After our unfortunate event, we had lunch at Saravana Bhavan, which happens to have a branch in Sunnyvale, California! Our lunch was filled with delicious Southern Indian delicacies. We then proceeded to return to the World Buddhist Center.
Now, we struggle to fit all of our new purchases in our suitcases and are sad to depart. Our experience has allowed us to open our eyes and mind to an entire new culture. We all long for a nice hot shower and this time we won't take it for granted. We're all so excited to return home to our families and share our wonderful and adventurous stories!!
