Getting to experience all of India; the people, food, culture, language, etc. I can't pick one specific thing because I loved it all! I would have to say that where we lived was absolutely incredible. Waking up early to read, drink chai, and watch the sunset overlooking the Himalayas is something I will never forget.
Brian Joseph Turnbull, Summer 2014 Participant
Interacting with my teachers, co-residents at LaVilla Bethany, and locals, asking them about their lives, India, anything, was extremely informative and interesting.

My favorite part of the program was meeting the locals and living with the locals. I got to do things that I would probably never have done if I wasn't a part of this program, such as celebrating religious holidays, going to schools and visiting beautiful Temples in Central India.
