International exchange Rinkeby/New Dehli

Namaste,
Living in India must be challenging in many ways but it also lead up to that many people great entrepreneurs. It is not difficult to start up your small peddling business on the street. It does not include a lot of paperwork as I found out by talking to people with their own small business. This man had his own tea business.

International Rinkeby/ New Delhi

The Red Fort

Namaste,

Our bus finally arrived after what seemed ages. We were in old Delhi. Here we negotiated and finally got a satisfying price for a Rickshaw, a human taxi. My colleague and I were in luck, our driver spoke English. Mad traffic and lots of bumps in the road, helicopter massage our driver told us it was. He took us to the Red Fort which was magnificent.  We also saw from a distance the Shiva temple and the Buddha temple.

Namaste,
The bus picked us up in the morning and we  left for New Delhi. It was a bumpy ride. It was an amazing trip in many ways the things that you see as the bus isin motion. The planning of infrastructure seem at times to be nonexistent. They are building everywhere. Gurgaon is a relatively new city, an upcoming middle class area with poverty everywhere as well. The traffic is enormous and the jam is always present. It’s easy to get a drivers license in India and I can see that. The driving is a close call but it all seems to work. The speed limit is not high which in this case is beneficiary for everyone. I saw a sign that said “Lane driving is insane driving.”

Traffic jam all day long!

Finally our bus arrived. We loaded our luggage and headed towards the hotel. We arrived at our hotel in Gurgaon in the middle of the night Indian time. It was dark and cold but we were all in good spirit. Had a quick meal and then off to bed.

Our lobby at the hotel, Fancy!

Namasté,
We arrived in New Delhi in the middle of the night, Indian time after a very short stopover in Austria. A very quick reflection, as we took our seats I noticed that all the Indian men on the plane sat with their winter jackets on. Instead of taking them off they zipped them down a bit and let the air in. They were obviously warm for the seven hour flight.  Why did they do that?

We went through customs and then Indian time started. We waited for our bus for ages as it seemed but we were all in good spirits and I think a bit overwhelmed.

My name is Sarah Wahllof and I teach Home economics, English and Swedish as a second language at Rinkebyskolan. I will not blog about that, instead I want to take you on a journey to New Delhi, India. I’m fortunate to be on a study visit to India this week together with 34 or teachers from 10 different schools. I will tell you about my experiences as well as show you pictures from this study visit. So, join me on my journey and you will learn more.
