I have been running around non-stop since I came to Dehli. During our first full day in Dehli we walked through the spice market(the largest one in Asia) and visited Salaam Baalak. It is a street kid NGO (non-government organization). We went to the boys home and we took a tour of the neighborhood. Our tourguide was a former street kid who grew up in Salaam Baalak.

On our third day we went to the Taj Mahal, the first of the Seven Man-Made Wonders of the World. We left at 6 am and arrived 6 hours later. Our group is kind of slow so by the time we got to the Taj we only had 30 minutes! I wish we were able to spend the night. Before we left we toured the Red Fort, which was a palace but now houses a military training camp.

Classes have started and the readings for class are amazing. I caught a cold and spent all of yesterday sleeping and today we are heading out to visit Amritsar and the Golden Temple for three days. After that, we spend one day in Dehli and then on Sunday we leave for Varanasi.

Happy Travels!
