In order to expand the children’s minds it is always good to expose them to various cultures, languages, cuisines and traditions. India has such rich and diverse traditions, history and architecture so there is always something new to be learnt.
The senior Parichay kids set off for Jaipur around 05.30 on the 21st of December along with Vijay and project volunteers Puneeta, Naval and Suhel, and first arrived at the magnificent Amer Fort at noon. The children then had the opportunity to enjoy some traditional Rajasthani dishes:- Gatte ka Salan and Onion Kachori, along with their favourites:- Chilli Paneer, Dal Makhani and Choley.
The children then finished off the day by visiting the beautiful Birla Mandir and Hawa Mahal, followed by an evening meal and some much needed rest at a guest house.
The next day the children experienced the splendor of Albert Hall and City Palace before making their way back to Delhi. The trip was not without a dull moment, and even included the occasional dance in the coach!
