Bianca, Tamara, Sander, and Syra were the last ones to arrive today. Now the group is almost complete: Bianca, Chris (from the UK), Eleni, Flora, Krishna, Nathalie, and Tamara with Sander and their little sweet daughter Syra (loved by all Indians!!). We are still waiting for Marleen and hope that she will manage to arrange her new visum quickly so that she can join us. Everyone is happy to finally have arrived and settled down in their various accommodations and we enjoyed our first evening meal together. Lots of talking and catching up of course but it is great to see them all together in such a different location. Let's wait till tomorrow and see if we can get the ladies to buy and wear a Salwar Kameez. The male part of the group might find some pleasure in purchasing and wearing a lunghi. Malayalam word for a wrap-around cloth worn as a skirt by both men and women in Kerala (dhoti in Hindi). Before that we will start with an early morning Puja for Dr. Vijith's new building! So time to get some rest now! Till tomorrow!!
