I'm in Love!!

with Bollywood movies! I went and saw my very first Bollywood film with our first group of participants. I'm totally in love and can't stop watching them! Since we went to the movies on Sunday night, I have already watched 3 more films that have been collected in the volunteer lounge over the last few years. It is a whole new movie experience and I loved every minute of it! I can't even fully describe the experience. You have to experience it for yourself to fully understand. The movies are in Hindi but there is enough English to understand the basic plot of the story. My friend Kelsey says that the Sioux Falls Library has them so you should check them out!

I'm in the middle of my first event. Things have been really hectic but have been really fun. Participating in this event, we have groups from the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada and range in ages from 17 to 78. They are a really fun bunch even though most of them have been sick at some point in their trip so far.

The monsoon still hasn't started. It keeps raining during the afternoon but stops. It rains just enough to make the humidity even worse although it has been nice during the night sleeping. (Or I'm just getting used to the weather, I'm not sure!) Everyone expected the monsoon to be here days ago so we are all enjoying the sunshine while it lasts. Because once its gone, it will be gone for a while.

I've had a request of pictures of Sangam. I keep trying to post those but Blogger seems to be having issues with uploading pictures. I'll keep trying to get those up for you all to see.

Please let me know if you have any questions about events or anything else about my stay. I'd be glad to answer!
