I was sick this weekend. Nothing too serious – just your run-of-the-mill fever and sore throat – but it’s meant I’ve been rather miserable the past few days. My immune system craves home when it’s been compromised.
One aspect of studying through Alliance that I have truly come to appreciate and enjoy is the existence of Alliance-coordinated lectures, and activities. Sometimes we get caught up in big weekend trips and forget to take in the small experiences.
For the week of Diwali, we had a full ten days free of obligations to travel and explore India’s diverse landscapes and states. Two of my friends and I decided to take this opportunity to visit the South of India.
