Back in Germany

After three weeks of travelling in the north of India, we are finally back. Here in Germany everything is so different: You don’t see animals in the streets, you can’t hear constant beeping from all the cars and people only wear black and grey clothes: Life here is soooo boring compared to our experiences in colourful India…  We visited lots of various places: the mountains in Shimla, the crowded streets in Delhi and the busy bazars in Jaipur to name just a few. It is impossible to tell you which place we enjoyed most as all of them were so distinct.

Not only did we see all these amazing places, but we also got to know so many awesome people. The teachers and pupils at Nehru World School were not helpful: They were way more than that.


Students from Nehru World School welcoming us

They invited us to their homes and took us to so many interesting sights. Moreover, they would always be there if we needed help. They organized whole days for us taking us to temples, malls and much more. The students welcomed us in the most hospitable way singing  a song for us, mentioning us in their speeches and even playing the German national anthem for us.

That is why we really want to go back there soon. And next time we would like you to experience everything with us, not just on a blog but in real. Hopefully, the project will work out and we will be able to travel to North India next year.

Inter School Competition ‘Creo 2014 fest’

In our last week in India we were happy to witness a very special event that was organized by Nehru World School: Inter School Competition ‘Creo 2014 fest’. It is a three days event with 850 students from 19 Schools competing in 20 different events. There was a jury, consisting of famous and important people.

As events, we saw amazing dance performances, students arranging ‘Ikebana’, creating paper bags and we also listened to Hindu poems. Even though we weren’t able to understand the poems‘ lyrics, we were touched by the passionate way the students performed them.


 Not easy to tell how many arms can be seen here

The students knew in advance in which event they would participate and seemed to be very well prepared for the competition.


Will they be able to finish this Ikebana in time?

At the end of the day all students gathered to find out which school won in the different events. The winners received their prizes on the stage.

Sightseeing and Shopping in Jaipur

Today we will tell you more about our impressions of Jaipur and its surroundings. The city is famous for its various bazars that we checked out on the first day (yes we are girls…). We had to get used to the way of shopping here, as it is very different from shopping in Germany. There are no fixed prices and the vendors always want to convince you to enter their shops. Of course they try to make best profit so you have to be careful and never pay the price they first suggest.

Outside the city center there are many palaces. Three of them are located high on a hill: Tiger Fort, Jaigarh Fort and Amber Fort. Amber Fort is one of the main tourist attractions in the region. Still we got the impression that we are a better motif for photographs than the actual sight. At least six groups of people asked us to take a picture with them.


Amber Fort

As you have a fantastic view from Tiger Fort we went there to enjoy the sunset.

To perfect our touristy day, we went to a place called Choki Dani and had a traditional meal there. Choki Dani is not only famous for it’s traditional food, but also for its ethnic dance shows and performances.

Trip to Rajastan – Land of the kings

Sorry that it took us so long to share this post. We had some difficulties with the internet connection in our hotel. Even though the hotel is very modern it happens that the internet doesn’t work.

After having worked at the school for a couple of days, we decided to visit a place that is said to be typically Indian, yet totally different to what we already saw: Rajastan.

Fact file

Rajastan means “Land of the kings”. This state is located in the north-east of India at the border to Pakistan.

Jaipur is the capital of Rajastan with 2.5 million inhabitants living there. It is about 300 km south-west of Delhi. The city is India’s most popular tourist destination after the Taj Mahal. One of the reasons for this is the pink colour of all buildings in the city center. In the 19th century (when the Prince of Wales visited Jaipur) the Maharaja decided to paint all buildings pink (it is the colour of hospitality). That is why Jaipur is also called “Pink City”.

One more reason for Jaipur being so popular among tourists is the amount of historic buildings like palaces and castles that you can find here. Even the hotel we stay in used to be a city palace.
