We’re here! Tayelor and I have been traveling for the past four days and finally made it to Sevalaya. We had a twelve hour layover in London, which was fantastic. We made use of our day passes for the tube and ate at a great pub, went to the British Museum and did some shopping! Our next leg of the journey was spent in Mumbai, India where we went out with some locals to the beach and got to try some great local food. We had great conversation and really got to see a part of the city that that normal tourists might miss out on.
When we arrived here at Sevalaya people were happy to see us and very welcoming. There isn’t a ton of instruction which will give us a great opportunity to create our own projects. The food is good, but also very spicy. It is super-hot outside and there is definitely no air conditioning. There are other international volunteers that are super helpful and are helping us get into the swing of things here. I can’t wait to see what this summer has in store and I’m going to do my absolute best to do it with a smile and a great attitude!
