Coming back to India this semester is even better than orignally arriving.
With just a week left in Pune, I have finally found the answer to many of my questions throughout the semester: India's problem with confidence.
As a food lover, I have come to realize that India’s food culture is utterly complex. Depending on the region, the city and the cook, you will find differences and nuances in how the same dish is prepared. In Pune, I have dabbled in the unknown world of street food, grown accustomed and attached to my host-mother’s nightly cooking routine, and even learned a thing or two about the art of bargaining for fresh fruits and vegetables.
These past couple of weeks I have been spending at Connecting which is an organization that aims at suicide prevention and provides support to survivors and those who have lost someone to suicide.
Be it ghee, spices for digestion or some delicious buttermilk, Indian people believe full heartedley in the importance and effectiveness of natural remedies.
Greetings Friends, from Kerala!
I am spending my travel week with family in my home state! I will tell you more about it next week when I have the words to describe it! I thought I'd give you a post while I'm sitting waiting to leave for the day!
Just remember that you can only do the best that you can.
I love to hike in the United States and being in a city for too long drives me crazy so I knew that this would be a trip well worth taking
Homesickness isn't fun, especially when you are miles and miles away from your family and have limited wifi.
I was immediately encapsulated by the idea of living with a family that calls my host country home. I mean, what better way is there to have a so-called “authentic” study abroad experience than to partake in the day-to-day lives of a family?
