    Week one in Ahmedabad

    March 9 in India ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    We are in Ahmedabad right now and I still don’t know if I like it here or not. It the farthest from Ottawa I’ve ever seen, culture-wise, living/city-wise, and distance-wise. There aren’t many people with white skin here, so lots of people come and take selfies with us. There are a lot of homeless people here, more than I’ve ever seen in my life, especially little kids 👧🏾 and babies 👶🏾 . It makes me realize how lucky I am, to have a nice house, good food, clean water, and even to have shoes👟! When we leave Ahmedabad, I am going to make a donation to an organization that helps kids who live on the street, and Dad’s going to match the amount that I donate. We have seen an extremely wide range of wealth here, from people sleeping on the side of the road, to people living in mansions. I think that it’s important for people to visit a place like Ahmedabad, because, I think lots of people who live in North America and Europe, feel like they don’t have enough, but we need to realize how lucky we are because there are people living with literally nothing. Walking around is really hard because there are lots of crazy drivers in cars 🚘 , on scooters 🛵, motorcycles 🏍, and rickshaws (like a Thai tuk-tuk), and we don’t know how to cross streets properly here! My Mom’s friends Mohol and Christina, from when she came to India 22 years ago, live here in a big complex. They have two kids, C (she’s 12, going on 13) and K (he’s 7, going on 8). We’ve gone over to their house for dinner a couple of times. They have a very nice house, and they employ a family. There is some really good food here. My favourites are roti, parathas, aloo naan, and daal. I noticed that there are tons of street dogs, with lots of sores, and scratches, and I feel really bad for them.

    I think it’s worth coming here, even just for a few days.

    Yoga in Ahmedabad, Gujarat

    March 5 in India ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We tried a kids class today at a yoga studio in our neighbourhood. They had some fun and interesting swings for the kids to practice their poses with. The teachers and the other students were lovely and very welcoming. After the class we had cake.

    The Vickram Sarabhai Space Exhibition

    March 3 in India ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Today me my mom and my brother went to a space center. Once we got there and went inside there was this boy about 8 years old who came up and asked us if we wanted him to explain the parts of a rocket ship. Surprisingly he could speak very fluent English and he explained most of the rocket until an older man took over. The rest of the bottom floor wasn’t very interesting because it was mostly stuff about satellites so we went upstairs. Upstairs there was this little rocket ship that we played on for a little while and then we found a suit to take pictures in. But I was too small to get my head in the helmet so I had a head shaped like a hand. On our way home we went to an ice cream place and had a little something. ( if you’re wondering what a little something is it’s just ice cream nothing much.)

    Good bye

    - DALE 😃😍🥰😘
