Our first days in India

A welcome with orange marigold malas.

Exploring Lodi Gardens in Delhi and wandering through a cluster of Mughal-era tombs.

An adventure through the nation’s capital in green and yellow autorickshaws.

Learning how to eat dosas and idlis (and much more) with our hands.

The first sip of hot chai on a moving train.

The sound of birdsong and far-off goatherds as we walk through the Rajasthani hills.

The drumbeat of celebration on Janmashtami (the Hindu god Krishna’s birthday).

Rooting for our heroines in the blockbuster Bollywood movie “Dangal.”

Feeling and evaluating the design of each yard of fabric to be crafted into kurtas by the tailor.

Brainstorming our group’s hopes, dreams, and goals for the coming year.

Laughing together, eating together, sharing our stories together.

… these are just a few of our first #bridgeyearmoments
