Hi Karen [Travellers Team]!

Holly and I took a trip to Varkala in Kerala... for my Birthday and had a lovely time, even though it was rather rainy!

We have been away to Kodaikanal, Varkala, Pondicherry and Mamallapuram (with Alex too) and this weekend we will be going to Kanniyakumari with Alex, Ellie and Tara [Volunteers].

Alex, Holly and I plan to spend a week in Kerala from the 20th July visiting Periyar wildlife sanctuary, Munnar and Kochi, and then Holly and I are heading off for 2 weeks on the 2nd August to Banglore, Hampi and Goa.

Travelling has been really easy so far and we have really got the hang of train travel! The introduction booklet gave us loads of inspiration for our trips so we have you to thank for that!

The project is fine. The Doctor has been explaining all about the different procedures and conditions, and I have seen several interesting operations including a cesarian! I have been taking notes on everything and have definitely learned a lot.

I would have liked to have been able to do more at the hospital. There is a lot of observation, which is interesting, but there are times when the hospital is very quiet and the Doctor is consulting out-patients, all of which is in Tamil so I find it hard to follow.

I understand that without any actual training there is little that I can do, but hearing how Alex has been so hand-on at the orphanage makes me want to be able to do something similar.

Holly and I have nearly finished the yoga course, which we both thoroughly enjoyed! I think we will both continue to practice the asanas, even once we no longer have classes.

The Tamil was very challenging! But we have lots of vocabulary that we can continue to learn, and the nurses at the hospital love it when I try and make conversation in Tamil with them.

All in all we have loved India so far and can't believe how quickly is has all gone so far! We are very grateful to Travellers and Anitha for making everything so easy and enjoyable for us.

Regards,

Alyss
