India Thursday

Last night we all experienced the crazy but fun, tuk tuk rides. It was complete and utter chaos! We got onto the tuk tuk and got driven down to the sari shop. Once we got off the sickly vehicle we walked into a very colourful paradise of different materials. The boys had a very interesting way of measuring the sari's for the women in their families. (Jim's body shape plus boobs) We all came out of the shop with many purchases for ourselves and our families. (Don't be surprised if we come home in our sari's, we are planning to flash mob the airport) We jumped on yet another tuk tuk ride (lucky us) we arrived back at the hotel okay (thank god) and fell straight into bed.

 Yet another early morning, we set of for our final full day at the school :( We hopped onto the bouncy bus bonanza, to be greeted at the school by all of the childrens smiley faces. 
Joke for everyone. What three syllable word does not exist in the Indian language....... SUSPENSION!  (Jevhan's Joke)

For breakfast we had egg omlets, with a hint of spice. And we all loved them! (Yay to nice english food) After our fullfilling breakfast we headed down to our classes to teach another one of our fab lessons. All of the children were in high spirits after our morning of teaching, and we headed to the hall for the one and only Mikey and Hannah show! The task for today was the ‘pass the bean bag with no hands’ game (it was'nt as naf as you think because of the rubbish title) All four team members from each group, stood in a line with one bean bag under one players neck. The aim of the game is to pass it down the line and back to each player without using your hands. The children found this hillarious to watch, and were having a good time. The teams got to get one child from their teams each to come up to the front and have a go too, they had a blast.
Our lunch consisted of, DRUM ROLL PLEASE ...... dundundunduundundun....... CURRY! But we dont mind, as long as we want to survive out here!

Our afternoon activities were very energetic and chaotic. Due to such activities as: Musical stuff, dancing, cricket, football, cape and mask making. We are also learning a lot of the childrens names and this seems to mean a lot to them as it brightens up their little smiles when we do. It was then time for a second round of the Hannah and Mickey show. the unlucky victims for this round were: Chloe B, Mellisa, Ollie, and Eden. The game this time was an egg and spoon race. Sounds easy right, (wrong) we also had obstacles. There were cones, a bench to climb over, a limbo bar, and a hoop to climb through. After the leaders doing it sort of successfully, a few children from the encouraging audience participated. This was such fun for everybody to watch. 

Then followed by free time. The team were allowed to have their cameras out to take photos and majority of the children were trying their hardest to jump into the photos. 

When the kids were leaving to go home after another day packed with excitement some of the team went to have a browse in the town of Nallarajera. We will then leave to go back to the hotel for dinner and a chilled everning. Maybe some  of us will play the chess champion team staying in our hotel again tonight. They won, they are the 3rd best chess team in India. (Ha we have no chance, we have lost everytime!) 

We would also just like to say thank you for your comments as they keep the whole team focused and motivated. Share our amazing journey with everyone you know! 

Peace out! Love Chloe B and Nikita

P.S – Happy Halloween! Wooooeeeeeooooo (don't have to many sweets without us!)

Looks like your sari shopping trip was great fun - a well deserved break. Enjoy your last day at the school tomorrow - it's bound to be emotional but just think of it as the end of just one adventure - the first of many if you so choose. We just can't wait to hear all about it when you get back X x x x

Eden :-

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time

It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right,
I hope you had the time of your life.

Love you to the moon and back, twice xx

Love the blogs I would have spent days just admiring the fabric :) India looks an amazing place.

Can't wait to see your photos

Hi Charlotte Wow what a great time you're having, the daily blogs have brought sunshine (and monkeys) into our lives! So much to take in, it feels like you're experiencing it all at 100 miles an hour! We can't wait to hear more. I'm sure the last day will be just a great, hopefully not too tearful.
Take care, safe journey home.

Thank you for the "shout out" again, it's comforting to get a message from you Sweet.
I've sent Francesca a message and given her the blog address so ghopefully, she'll read all about the fantastic work you've been doing out there. How did the Sari shopping go? Did you enjoy your ride in the tuk - tuk?
Nannie and Grandad are coming to Pierres this weekend, I'm looking forward to seeing them as I've missed them too. Please try and get in a photo tomorrow as I struggled to see your face in any today. I hope your last day at school goes well and you make the most of having this wonderful experience.

Hi Roo (aka Zach)

Glad to see your smiling face in the sari shop!!!!!!!! At least nothing changes when your shopping.
Sam and I are enjoying Manchester, we all sit down with our cups of tea to listen to all the latest adventures and looking at the pictures , we've all agreed its better than "The Archers" .......
Amanda is coming over to Paul's with her 3 kids tonight, Sam's very excited as he's just realised he's not the youngest in the family.
Love the shout outs, but I didn't read this last one out for obvious reasons. Enjoy you last few days. Missing you madly, Izzy sends her love as do all of us.
Take care The Suthies (Mum) xx

Happy Halloween Eden! That's from Effi, she said she 'missed you so very much' today! She of course did her trademark poo in the sheltons company, so luckily you missed that ;) Been reading the blog everyday and sounds like you're having a blast! Ef's been asking to see all the pictures and has been trying to spot you and asking what you're doing! Can't wait to hear all about it when your home. Maybe we'll have to get a curry and you can reminise hahaha! Lots of love Alix & Ef xxx
