Happy Friday from Coimbatore!

Sorry for the long silence!

Our “next batch” of students has arrived safely and after a brief issue with a missing suitcase, everyone has all of their belongings. we apologize for the radio silence.

Our students have been here in India for just over a week now. We’ve kept everyone busy with orientation, shopping for Indian wardrobes and books, and starting the first week of classes, in between things like trying new foods, re-learning basic communication skills (more on the head bobble at a later date!), and trying our hand at crossing the street. If that wasn't enough, we’re already off on our first regional trip to Madurai this weekend, where we’ll be staying at the Tamilnadu Theological Seminary, seeing a sound and light show at the Tirumalai Nayak Palace and visiting the Meenakshi Temple!

Please stay tuned for next week, when we’ll be sharing about our trip to Madurai, the recent festival of Pongal, the "Amazing Race: Coimbatore," and maybe even a bit on the Indian “head bobble.”

Thanks as always for reading!
