Sorry to my Mum and Grandparents who are eagerly awaiting this! This is the first time I’ve had available to blog as I have just come back from Yellagiri today!
Yellagiri was fantastic! (Even though it took us 7 hours to get there!) A great time to spend with the boys and learn all their names. Me, Kieron and Amy were in charge of Rose Team who were wonderful, kind but slightly cheeky tweenaged boys bless them! These were particularly crafty boys who loved the drawing, insect mobiles and making stuff generally! Although we came joint last in the point competition, I really enjoyed Yellagiri! My top three highlights were probably the animal spotting competition, the campfire and our dance!…
…. To explain, the second day of Yellagiri was mainly focused on animals and creation with Christian themes but the boys were set a task to spot as many animals as possible, one point for each, and it was funny seeing the vast array of animals that they brought to us, chipmunks, mice, scorpions, chickens’ heads and birds – dead or alive!- to name but a few!
The campfire is quite self explanatory but it was an opportunity for the boys to show off their dancing, singing and acting skills to us, performing in front of a campfire! It was so adorable and my can they breakdance!
In response we performed Emma’s (our project leader’s) dance of which she choreographed for a year 6 assembly in 2 months… we had 2 hours! We just about pulled of this Olympic themed dance which the boys thoroughly enjoyed!
Now to talk about the food back in Chennai…
Oh my word Pista Milkshake (Pistachio Milkshake) at Doveton Cafe is to die for quite frankly! It tastes like somebody has taken a bit of heaven, blended it and put it in a glass! Along with that I had a Tomato Uttappam which is like a pancake with slices of tomato embedded – essentially divine!
Well it’s my bedtime now folks! I hope you’re having a good time in England (if only slightly jealous of me!)
… and yes mum, I’m managing just fine, no denghi fever, no diarrhea, no nothing!
Lots of Love Kate xxx
