Peddie in India 2015 - Day one.

This spring break, 16 students and their chaperones packed their bags and headed to India. The trip is focused on the Indian culture, including the study of Indian religions and exposure to key examples of Indian art and architecture, as well as an exploration of issues related to the Tibetan community-in-exile in Dharamsala.

Today's post comes to us from Sophia '15 and Nisha '15.

We started out our day one with a walking tour by a young man named Noor. He is a former street kid and now works with the Salaam Balaak Trust, an organization that takes kids off the street and provides a variety of services including a search for the parents and educational opportunities.  Next we visited a Hindu temple that was beautiful but cameras were not permitted inside. After a blessing and a quick walk through we headed for lunch.
