Photos from our First Week in India

Hello friends and family,

The BYIndia group is doing well and we wanted to share some photos of our first week in country!

Photo One: Student group and instructors in front of the Neem Karoli Baba Ashram (visited by both the Beatles and Steve Jobs!).

Photo Two: Students at orientation in Sonapani, working to place cities and notable geographic sites on a map of India

Photo Three: Group eating at the Chandi Maati Cafe, a project developed by the co-founder of the community of Sonapani to create more employment in the area. The group was sharing Kumaoni Thali plates.

As you are all aware, the group is based in a rural section of India and continues to have limited internet access. But please know that everyone is having an exceptional time and we will post updates when we can!

More news soon!
