We started the day with, can you guess?
We then departed for lessons after breakfast in the blazing heat of yet another glorious day in India. Some of the more popular lessons of today included Mairi and Syd’s Beetle Drive which we were assured counted as a maths lesson. Benji and I delivered another fantastic photosynthesis lesson, of course. Cara, Sandra, Fiona, Tom and Benji had a difficult lesson sewing with standard 7 due to their lively personalities.
After teaching the first steps were taken towards practice for our leaving show with dance rehearsals to Uptown Funk… let’s just say some of us need more work!
We then returned to the rooms for a short rest before playtime. This was meant to be a time of ‘relaxation’, however, it did not turn out as such. Evidently, Jay and Tom’s rice servings had been too large as they went crashing to the floor, the frame of the bed splitting in two.
Playtime soon came around the corner after the bed fiasco. Many new games such as French skipping, badminton and bubbles featured in the playground today. As well as this, the first ever England VS India Cabada games were played. We will win next time, that’s a promise.
After playtime, Alice, Issi and myself (Jay) went on an impromptu errand running trip with The Big Boss himself. We were taken in his lovely 4X4 (with air con!!!) around Vriddhachallam performing some mysterious fruit deals. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to us, the rest of the group were tirelessly sat waiting for our return in order to start their evening meal. There were less smiles than anticipated upon our return… Thankfully to soften the wait, the meal included our favourite chicken dish once again.
The day again ends sat outside sharing stories of the day, before a (hopefully good) nights sleep before our excursion to Pondicherry tomorrow.

Apologies for the lack of photos. We have no internet here and so are texting the blogs to Laura’s grandad Jef, who is very kindly posting them for us. We shall add photos as soon as we can.
