When we go to school at 9 in the morning the trash has been brushed from the street by hand and gathered here, outside the inner city trash station. There are no dust bins, so everything goes in the street. It's surprisingly clean at daytime.
A typical ride to school. I'm amazed that the school has chosen the color white for their school uniform. It's so dusty here and these active boys... I'd say they are dirty within five minutes. Their poor mom's that have to clean all day long.
Our new favourite restaurant in Pahar Ganj, Delhi. After 8 in the evening we can buy a lot of german bakery for almost nothing, so I use to send Nicholas for some yummy shopping.Leya and Nicholas after a pizza lunch at Sam's.
Today the hindu and sikh women in the north of India are celebrating the festival Karva Chauth. They dress in beautiful clothes, fast and perform rituals for their husbands wealth and health. Read more about the festival here.
Leya in the school room for the first time. She is sitting in the back since the children are screaming prayers and poems very loud.In the nursery they have this bike that sounds like a fart when you are sitting on it. Leya thought that was very funny!
Leya and our friend Jain, from Manali. We are going to his family in Jaipur over Diwali. They are Jain Buddhists and not Zen Buddhists as I thought. A huge difference, but equal exciting to experience.
Leya on the way to school for her first day.Today we registrated Leya at the principal office and she got all the books. In this school they start writing and reading at 2,5 years.The school room with all the children.Leya swinging outside the nursery.
Khan market in the embassy area. It was a entirely different atmosphere. Like walking in the neighbourhood of the TV-serie Friends. Sausages, bacon, cheese. Like heaven for us, but so expensive! Next time we know more what to buy and we can plan better.
Leya's Cinderella dress is ready. She was so excited, but at the same time very shy. The master taylor was so happy to give her the dress. She also wanted to show the taylor that had made the stitching work.
Today we ran into Jain that we met in Manali, Himalaya, in march. We had dinner together and he invited us to his hometown Jaipur for the celebration of Diwali. They are zen-buddhists so it would be really interesting to go.
