Today we finally had to present. After many days working hard on our project, we are done. We had many disagreements in my group and we found it hard to find information on our project which was about wind turbine. The language barrier made working on this team difficult but regardless I love my group. Ive gotten the chance to speak to them individually and have grown close to them each. They are the sweetest people I have met. One of the guys on my team was nice enough to gift me a notebook that I really wanted with the money he earns himself. i found this surprising because not many students here work and go to school. The students here go to school six days a week, all day. It was such a small gesture but it meant the world to me. This has been my favorite team to work on so far.
I really enjoyed this program and trip to india. I know this is a one in a lifetime opportunity. The chance to be able to work in such a diverse team, is not very common. The days preceding the presentation, my group and I stayed up late, working and sharing laughs and snacks. I will truly miss the long nights huddled up in a dorm room studying with them.
This week we had cultural day, where all of us dressed in traditional indian clothing. I love the clothes here especially the kurtas. They are very comfortable.
