in india, everything is backwards. from eating with you hands to driving on the wrong side of the rode. it would be fine if they would drive on only that side of the rode but the thing is, they don't.

the dotted lines in the middle of the rode are only a suggestion as to where you're supposed to drive. more or less, as long as you don't hit anything or anyone, you can drive whereever you want.

we checked into hour hotel at around 4 or 5 am and slept the whole next day trying to overcome jetlag and our traumatic cab ride from the airport to Pondi.

the day after it was our first build day and we woke up early to cath the bus with our group to the village just on the outskirts of town where we would be constructing homes.

the amount of kids in this village is unbelievable. not only that, the fact that they are all happy and have nothing. most people won't be able to imagine...

all of them want to hold you hand and they absolutely love cameras.

Mixing mortar and laying bricks is so much more difficult when it's body temperature outside. i have never sweat so much in my life; it literally runs off you in sheets and by the end of the day, you're so dirty that the only thing you want is a shower.

work ends at 4 everyday where we go back to the hotel, clean up and go out for dinner.
