Namaste Springside Chestnut Hill adventurers!
17 more days until we meet in incredible India! It was nice to meet you students and chaperones in person back in Jan at SCH, and the parents via teleconference a few weeks ago. Months and months of planning and it’s finally here. A little more than 2 weeks and we will be meeting in the airport, sleepily creeping up the beautiful Himalayan foothills by train, and celebrating colorful Holi in the Uttrakhand village of Kausani. I hope you all are excited as I am, even though this is somewhere near my 20th program in India, it never gets boring or repetitive. Every trip to India unfolds a new surprise and life changing experience for me and the group. Ramp up your appetites for delicious food, don’t forget the packing light suggestion and please please post what you are most excited about here on the yak board so we revisit our pre-departure thoughts after we are done making memories this trip. Safe travels! – Debi Goldman
