Location: Lifeworks India
Today, we woke up around 8 am. We were all a bit tired because of our jetlag but our excitement to meet each other and to start the program keep us awake.
We took a really nice breakfast at our bed and breakfast and tried some chai, a special Indian tea. Then we went to the airport of Delhi to take a 1 hour flight. On the plane we played a lot of funny games. After our flight we had a late lunch at a very good restaurant. We ate some Indian, Chinese and western food according to everyone’s taste.
Then we drove to the Golden Temple, the architecture was amazingly beautiful and we saw a lot of Indian people praying and washing themselves in the water surrounding the temple. We felt like we were in a completely different world. After that we had to drive for 4 hours, it was perfect for getting some sleep and to fight against our jetlag. We took a short stop and continued to ride for another 1 and a half hour.
When we arrived at the monastery in Dharamsala, it was almost midnight and we were very happy to try a kind of Tibetan food which looks like dumplings. After, we went to our room, begun to unpack our stuff and went to bed. We had a really nice day and we were really excited about our next day!
