Well, we (Annie and Shantel) have been here in Delhi for one month. What a month its been! India has been a huge shock to our senses on every level. Culturally, this is the most foreign either of us has ever felt. We have had to quickly adopt simple phrases in Hindi and learn about the customs of a culture very different from home. Just the short walk to work presents a multitude of unfamiliar sights, smells, and sounds. I'm proud to say that we have become accustomed to all these things and our little apartment is slowly starting to feel like home. Not only have we been slowly adjusting to just living in Delhi, we have also had the opportunity to see so many amazing projects with Maitri.
