Tashi Dalek! Five days, six planes, three countries, and one twelve hour taxi ride later, we’ve finally made it to Dharamsala. The town is set high in the Himalayan hillside and strung together with colorful prayer flags and beautifully constructed buildings. So far we’ve seen camels, elephants, and some giant monkeys. Today was our first full day here and so far we have experienced the abundant culture, awesome views, and delicious cuisine. Although most of the day was spent in line to get IDs to see the Dalai Lama, we got to see a glimpse of His Holiness and the next three days we get to attend his teachings. We also start our Tibetan language classes tomorrow as well as meeting our home-stay families.

Although we have had an exhausting last few days, we have so many adventures ahead of us and we look forward to sharing them all with you!
