We can’t believe our trip is coming to an end soon! It seems strange to know that we’re done teaching and will be back in the States. We’re praying for a smooth transition!
Our visit to the fourth school was unexpectedly cut short when it was decided that school would be canceled on Friday due to a village festival. We were sad to lose a day with the children that we had grown fond of. Expect more pictures soon…
Since we had today, Friday, off, the team went and visited the Qutub Shahi tombs, the only place in the world where a whole dynasty of royalty is buried. The tombs were beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area.
Afterwards, we went to visit the NTR gardens by the lake that we visited last weekend. We had expected open gardens and colorful flowers but instead found a haunted house, an illusion hall, and more slightly shady amusement park rides. We enjoyed our time there as well though and also got mehndi, or henna tattoos, on our hands.
Tomorrow we’ll be spending our morning back at our third school in the slums to help with their AWANA program. We’re excited to see the students and staff again and be back in the neighborhood. We’ll blog with more
