This week we had the first ever Staff Training for Camp Rainbow. It was incredible. So many people who had worked in India had told us not to expect too much.. not to expect the staff to open up quickly, or to act silly.. or to be able to adjust to 'camp culture'. Boy was that not the case. The group of people we worked with was INCREDIBLE - they were so, so fun, open to trying new things, willing to break down perceived cultural barriers... they were THERE. They got it. It was fun. And hot. But mainly fun. Ok, fun and hot. I cannot emphasize how hot. Anyway.. a couple pictures (we try to protect the privacy of our particpants, you know how that goes.. so vague pictures only.)
The day after training we had a few hours to do some site-seeing. We were so so exhausted, and so so SO hot - but I am glad we ventured out because it was the only chance I had on this trip to be a tourist! Here is the team I traveled/worked with. They are AMAZING, and made my life a happy place. I get to work with some of the best people in the entire world. Truly. Just look at how adorable they are. And sweaty. But mainly adorable.
