Day 5 - Friday 22nd January

Friday, and the end of our first week in India. But no time for reflective contemplation - we were up early and off to our various activities for the day. The same groups went to Cheshire Home for Physio, the two Deepalaya schools, and Education on Wheels. At midday, we were herded into buses at our respective locations, and enjoyed a Chinese variation in our 'Special Thali' lunchbox on our way to the Kamalini centres.

Sanding and plastering continued at a faster pace at the Sharpur Jat centre, so that by the time we left one room had been completed, one room needed only a final coat of paint, and the last room was all ready for painting on Monday morning.

In the evening we went to St Alphonsa's for Mass, and said a beautiful Novena to the Sacred Heart. The words and hymns of the Novena were amplified by the incredible acoustics of the Church, making it a beautiful and stirring devotion to Our Lord. After Mass, we came home to a deliciously mild chicken curry before collapsing into our beds (no exaggeration there). All over, it was a week of many new sights, sounds, smells, and experiences; a week of markets, schools, slums, and curry.
