Rotary youth parilment and zonal conference

Everybody wants to meet the American, so I'm attending a lot of Rotary events.

The day before yesterday was the youth Parliament (think debate, then add Indian accents.).
September is Youth (or 'yoot' as it's pronounced here)  Month for Rotary, so most of the events are for/ about kids.

That guy in the second photo is  hilarious. I snapped this pic of him as he was explaining that I need to take lots  of photos of him so "you can tell your friends at US that you met most important man in India!"  he's also the rotary motto is take photo guy; its a shame I can remember his name.

After the debate my host sister and I walked around the mall, which is remarkable similar to malls that I am used to.

Yesterday was a rotary Zonal conference. My host parents and I were only planning on attending for a little while, but ended up staying a couple hours.

The kids were funny, if shy. Its hilarious how much awe I inspire by just existing.


  1. Wonderful photos, Megan--keep it up! If your eight months in India are anything like my mission in South Korea, then you might as well just accept the fact that you're going to be stared at--that you'll "inspire awe just for existing"--for your entire time there.

  2. Such cute kids. It's so great of you to poise and take a picture with everyone. I also was amazed by the shot of the mall--that's nicer than anything we have around here.--Grandma M.

  3. The last girl looks like she's thinking this 'Aw yes...another. I must add this to my plan....perfect.' Though she is cute I would steer clear from that one :P

  4. You are training to be a diplomat--give lots of speeches, pose for lots of pictures and eat chocolate. --Grandpa M.
