Day 4

Waking up, we were all greeted a thick morning fog allowing you to only see about 5 feet in front of you. If it weren’t for cars’ blinking lights and constant horns, crossing the intersection on the morning walk to breakfast at Hotel F66 may have been a different story.

Today was also many of the students’ first experiences with transportation in Delhi. We first boarded a metro train inbound towards Old Delhi. From there we all split up into 6 tuk-tuks (the local three-wheeled taxis) to take a short ride to Gandhi Smriti, where Mahatma Gandhi spent the last 144 days of his life before being assasinated. Gandhi was a great activist who aided the push for Indian independence and was a firm believer in peace and unity among religions. On the grounds they laid out Gandhi’s final path, in footsteps, on his way to evening prayer before he was shot. The grounds also had exhibit panels describing both his early and activist life, powerful quotes of his scattered throughout, and an interactive multimedia exhibit on the influences of Gandhi.
