Hope all is well in Sráid an Mhuilinn?! I have successfully completed the 1st part of my volunteering so I thought it best to send an update back.
I arrived into Delhi at about 3.40AM and was escorted to very basic accommodation in the centre, it was a total culture shock and a whole new world. I was here for about 2 days and then got a 14hour sleeper train to Pathankot in Himachal Pradesh and then about a 4hr car ride to the Idex volunteering house in Bundla, Palampur, I stayed here for the duration of the project, when I arrived there was an older lady, Barbara from Wicklow, just finishing a woman empowerment project then I was on my own until the last week when a travelling group and another volunteer arrived.
