    3. Tag - Bollywood hautnah

    September 21, 2019 in India ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Wow - was soll ich sagen - es war laut, bunt, glitzernd und ohne ein Wort Hindi zu sprechen haben wir doch alles verstanden. Ein kurzweiliges Erlebnis das ich nicht hätte missen möchten 😍 - gefolgt von einem leckeren Thali zum Abendessen und indischem Rum im Bus auf der Rückfahrt nach Delhi!Read more

    Ah, spannend! Vom Aussehen her hätte ich mehr Fleisch vermutet, aber vom Kopf her mehr Vegetarisches 😋

    2. Tag - Curry zum Frühstück

    September 20, 2019 in India ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Nach einer kurzen Nacht (meine Zimmerpartnerin Sofia kam erst gegen 3:00 Uhr an) gab es tatsächlich Kichererbsencurry zum Frühstück - war ziemlich lecker! Dann hat sich die ganze Truppe und unser Reiseleiter Amrit erstmal kurz vorgestellt bevor es endlich los ging...

    Unser erstes Tagesziel war der größte Hindutempel Indiens - leider sind hier Handys und Fotoapparate verboten, sodass wir die Pracht aus verschiedenfarbigem Sandstein und weißem Carara-Marmor nur aus der Ferne festhalten konnten (dabei hätte es so viele tolle Elefanten-Statuen gegeben!). Danach ging es durch den total verstopften Verkehr (5 Autos parallel auf 3 Spuren plus Busse, TukTuks, Rikshas und Fahrräder) zum India Gate - an der Prachtstraße hier liegen die ganzen Regierungsgebäude und wegen irgend einem Staatsbesuch war viel gesperrt - das Verkehrschaos war perfekt. Wir haben es indisch-gelassen genommen und wurden durch ein tolles wenn auch verspätetes Mittagessen entlohnt!

    Nachmittags ging es zum Grabmahl des 2. Mogul-Kaisers wo man endlich auch Fotos machen durfte und das Abendlicht und leicht abkühlende Temperaturen („nur“ noch um die 30C) einfach herrlich waren.

    3. Tag - Radtour mal anders

    September 21, 2019 in India ⋅ ⛅ 33 °C

    Heute ging es richtig früh los - um 6:30 startete unsere Radtour durch Old Delhi. Die Bikes waren für indische Verhältnisse Luxus - mit Lenkerkorb und funktionierenden Bremsen! Von 2 Guides begleitet ging es durch winzige Gasse, unter tief hängenden Stromkabeln hindurch, vorbei an Garküchen aller Art, Marktstraßen und Tempeln. Immer wieder machten wir Halt um z.B. einen Gewürzspeicher zu besteigen und die Aussicht auf das bunte Treiben zu genießen. Zur Stärkung gab es süßen Chai und Fladenbrot mit zweierlei Curry. Nach 4h waren wir durchgeschwitzt und voller Eindrücke zurück - die Freundlichkeit der Menschen ob ihrer Armut beschämt und ich schätze meine 20 Jahre alten Drahtesel daheim sowie die Münchner Radwege nun noch viel mehr!

    Danach tragen die Nicht-Radler zu uns und wir besichtigten die größte indische Moschee und anschließend einen riesigen Sikh-Tempel in dessen Küche täglich 20.000 Menschen mit 3 Mahlzeiten kostenfrei versorgt werden.

    Jetzt geht es nach einem dringend benötigten Dusch-Stopp im Hotel weiter zu einer Bollywood Show 💃

    Das etwas andere Sightseeing mit einem Rad durch Delhi hört sich super an und man entdeckt bestimmt einiges, was man sonst nicht sehen würde. Viel Spaß bei der Bollywood-Show 🕺

    Homestay Gurguan

    November 2, 2019 in India ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Wir sind von einem Kollegen von Markus eingeladen dort den Abend und die Nacht zu verbringen. Wir verbringen einen netten Abend mit leckerem Essen und lernen viel über Land und Leute.

    Aufgrund der schlechten Luftwerte beschließen wir die geplante Sightseeing Tour von Delgi für den nächsten Tag abzusagen. Dafür halten wir unterwegs am Akshardham Tempel an. Ein wunderschöner rekonstruierter Tempel.Read more

    Best last day

    February 14, 2019 in India ⋅ 🌧 18 °C

    Today was the best last day. This morning we woke up to torrential rain, thunder and lightning and weren’t sure if projects would be on but luckily they were! We went to the slums and danced and sung with the kids in assembly, I then went over to the slum clinic for the last time with Dr Bashbu I couldn’t believe it was my last day! I sat with her as we saw loads of patients come in, even one who had struggled to conceive for 4 years but after recently receiving treatment we got to do a pregnancy test tell her she was expecting a baby! It was amazing. I then went up to my class to teach them for the final time, it was so sad! We did our normal maths class and I had bought in new felt tips and paper so they all went crazy drawing and colouring in. I also gave the girls a new skipping rope each as there’s were so old and mouldy and they were SO excited it was the most amazing feeling! They had all written me a valentines leaving card and signed it!! The teacher in my class gave me one of her bangles to remember her by and the teacher of the class next door have me the cutest butterfly bracelet, it was so sweet. We took loads of pics and hugged goodbye :( We then headed back to the house and went to the orphanage where we played, danced, sung and had a million cuddles goodbye. I was so sad! When we got back I still had some skipping ropes and pens and loads of bubbles so I took them to the slums right outside our house who literally have nothing and they were over the moon. There was a lot of squabbling over who got what but in the end they all had bubbles and pens and were so so happy, it was amazing! In the evening as a treat for my final dinner Hannah Bri and I went out for a valentines meal, it was candlelit and our table was covered in rose petals it was so funny! It really was The best last day 😭💜Read more

    Arriving in Delhi

    February 3, 2019 in India ⋅ 🌫 17 °C

    I arrived at the airport and after struggling to find my taxi driver, I managed to eventually make it to the volunteer house! Me and a new South African friend arrived together and got a tour of the family home, it was colourful and I was put in a 10 bed dorm! We spent the day chatting and getting to know each other and the other volunteers. We then had a slightly dodgy sweet corn curry followed by a trip to the supermarket to stock up on essentials (oranges and biscuits in my case). We came back and sat on the terrace with this sunset whilst chatting and having a yum dinner! 🇮🇳Read more

    Thank you Carly for update, pleased you are safe and having a lovely time. Thinking of you, with lots of love Nana from Alvor Portugal in the sun xxxxxx

    Back in the slums

    February 12, 2019 in India ⋅ 🌫 13 °C

    Today was so much fun! We started off going to the slums this morning and dancing with the children in the assembly. I then headed to join the female doctor in the slum clinic and sat with her as loads and loads of patients came in. She gave me a job to give out injections to over 10 women one by one and she only showed me how to do it once! It was so scary but so cool to be so hands on. I then got to do a mini ultrasound on a lady who was 6 months pregnant and could hear the heart beat of the baby it was amazing. I got to feel the baby and she was explaining the position of the baby in the tummy. Was so cool! After this, I helped paint some of the walls in the school building that has just been built and then played with the kids in the playground! We then came back to the house and had a yummy lunch before heading off to the mixed orphanage. It was so chilled as we bought a book of geometric patterns for the children to colour so we all sat there chatting doing that, it was so fun! After this they danced and sung for us before we left about 5:30. We came back, had dinner and Nutella topped chappatis (which we realised taste vaguely like Nutella crepes) and headed next door to play UNO with the boys in the orphanage next door. Was such a fun day!Read more

    Such a good day :)

    February 13, 2019 in India ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Today was SUCH a good day I loved every second. We decided to go to a different medical project this morning and do the medical camp instead of the slum clinic and it was so good! We had to do so much hands on work and loved it. We took names ages what the problem was, took blood pressure blood sugar and then gave out prescriptions, it was so much fun and we met so many people from the community. It was so busy and the people just kept coming we even had to say no to a few as we needed to finish up! We also had to clean wounds and replace dressings so it was so interesting! We then came back for lunch and I had another freezing bucket shower it was terrible hahaha. At 3.30 the tuk tuk picked us up and we had the most amazing evening ever. We had said we wanted to do the home visit this evening and it was actually a visit to our tuk tuk drivers house. We drove about 10 minutes in Faridabad and arrived in his town, like 20 children were there to greet us and then we got given flower garlands and got dressed up in Saris by the women and makeup and hair done, it was so cute! We played with the children, taught them English dances and they taught us Indian ones and had one million cuddles with them all, they were adorable! The family gave us dinner and all the children from the town came to sit with us it was adorable. Honestly one of the best evenings ever! Basically all the children from the town waved us off, didn’t wanna leave!Read more

    Back to Faridabad

    February 11, 2019 in India ⋅ 🌫 20 °C

    Today we spent the morning in the car, driving back to Faridabad from Jaipur. The journey was rather long and we all had numb bums by the time we arrived back at the house! I was so excited to see everyone again and we all sat and had lunch together catching each other up on our weekend escapades! After this I decided I wanted to go to the orphanage so Scarlett summer and I set off in the tuktuk for the orphanage! It was so so much fun today as there was less children and so we got so much work done with them. We wrote them some practise maths questions as practised English and then danced and played so many games together! It was sooo much fun :) then we came back and chilled and had a yummy dinner! At about 7.30 two of us decided to go next door to the boys orphanage and played uno with them, they were so excited to see us as it was so fun! We then came back and all sat and chatted and painted our nails! Was such a nice day getting back into the volunteering!Read more

    Day 3 on project

    February 6, 2019 in India ⋅ 🌧 20 °C

    Today we decided to go back to the slums as we had such an amazing day yesterday. We woke up about 9am and managed to find some Nutella in the back of the cupboards so had a break from curry for breakfast, it was divine!!! We then rode on the back of tuktuks to the slums and I started off with the women doctor at the free slum clinic today. It was amazing to see, about 20 women from the slums came in, each with different reasons, from struggling to conceive to contraception to pain during pregnancy. I took each of their blood pressure and the doctor explained to me the course of action. I then helped the lady hand out pregnancy tests and contraception it was amazing. I was even there to witness the moment a lady found out she was pregnant after struggling to conceive for 5 years. I then went next door and started giving out the free medication that was prescribed by the doctor and donated by PMGY. I sat with the doctor in there and cleaned and dressed 3 wounds for patients. I was then asked by a teacher to come help in her classroom and I had to teach an hour lesson on decimals. It was amazing to see how much they needed help, I even had to explain to the teacher that some of the work was incorrect so felt like I was actually making a difference! I marked a comprehension and was asked to do a decimals part two lesson tomorrow. We then played kebaddi with the kids again and then came back in a tuktuk. We spent the afternoon at a Bollywood dancing class it was hilarious! Then we came back and me and Hannah had eaten like 200 rusks so we did a workout lolRead more
