Location: Dharamsala

This morning we were even more exhausted than usual, getting up a full hour earlier than on the weekdays. After eating breakfast, we attempted to go to meditation class but had to walk back down to Common Ground, as the class was so full we couldn’t find seats. Half of us then went to momo making class (a momo is a Tibetan dumpling), and the other half stayed behind and played chess. The rest of the afternoon we had free time to walk around and shop. We switched up our usual routine in the evening and had a forum in Common Ground before dinner, and then went to the restaurant in the Hotel Tibet. After walking back down to the monastery, we watched a depressing but informative Bollywood film about the partition of India. Tomorrow a few of us are planning on going to the old church for the ten o’clock service, and all of us are looking forward to our Sunday off.
