I cannot believe I left for India nineteen days ago. It's crazy.
We worked this morning at 7 AM. Some American visitors are checking out the camp as well as the work site to see if their organization should send volunteers here (which they totally should)! They were super cool and nice to talk to.
After work, we learned how to make dal. You soak the lentils and then boil them with onions, tomatoes, and garlic. The spices include coriander, cumin seeds, garam masala, salt, and chili pepper. I call the chapati "chapats" and all the women laugh :).
I'm having the best time and don't want to leave! I know tomorrow will be just as sweet. I'll keep you posted. Alvida!
