Fun Stuff

My friend and I spent the day going around the city. We went to various temples and went to our guides silk factory/shop. I got to sit and help make a silk sari!
So, I'm obviously not very good at it. But it was fun and I can only hope some Indian woman will enjoy wearing it as much as I enjoyed working on it. We then went to the shop that sold the saris that they made. I ended getting two really beautiful saris from them. If you're wondering about the red dot on my head....I got blessed at a temple we went to. The guy also bumped me on the head five times with a wand made of peacock feathers and gave me a black necklace made of string lol. We also played a carnival game-
(I was the only one who actually popped a balloon!)
The last thing we did was go to "The first preaching place of Buddha). Here's some pictures -

I love this last picture. The art here is breathtaking and there is a lot of it.
I think we are going to the river temple tomorrow and getting Henna done on our hands. As much fun as I'm having...I miss my people in America. Much love to you all!

  1. This is so cool! I'm taking a religion class and there's a whole section on religion and art. You're gonna be so old and wise when you get least wise. Love you!
