Sitting Pretty

"Stay positive and happy. Work hard and don't give up hope. Be open to criticism and keep learning. Surround yourself with happy, warm and genuine people." - Tena Desae

So many positive things had happened and despite a re-occurring stomach problem that was keeping me on a regime of '3 days eating, 36 hours fasting', I was feeling really good about things.  The work at the different schools, despite being just three days, was positive and rewarding in every case!  Perhaps, because it was just three days, we all worked even harder to achieve the best we possibly could.

Leaving Darjeeling, I arrived back in Kalimpong and completed my time at a school in a village just down the hill from Kalimpong itself.  Sindebong is warm, beautifully warm and being in flip flops and a t-shirt was light relief to having been bundled up for so long.  The temperature differences across the range of places I visited was incredible really.
