BYIndia First Days in India


BY-India has enjoyed its first few days in India: in addition to Orientation activities and getting to know one another, we have visited the Bangla Sahib Gurudwara, explored Connaught Place and shopped for kurtas and salwar kameez, learned how to eat with our hands at the Andra Pradesh Bhavan canteen, picked up a book or two at the Full Circle bookstore, and wandered through the Mughal-era mausoleums in Lodi Gardens.

Now, we’re about to board the train at New Delhi station, on our way to Kathgodam station, followed by a winding jeep ride up to Sonapani.

Everyone is in high spirits and excited to go to the mountains!
