Welcome to India!

Throughout the program, students will learn about some of the cultural traditions, history, climate and politics of India, including how the cow is a sacred animal in India! After a visit to a Hindu temple and the sacred site of Sahastradhara, students will sit down for a meal of chicken tandoori and naan. At the journey's culmination, students will visit the mausoleum of Ram Rai, watch a cricket match and partake of one of India's most popular pastimes -- going to the movies!
