AALP Class 14 International Study Tour - Saturday March 2, 2013

The flight from Delhi to Brussels was uneventful. One thing we did notice was the high security leaving India. Just to get on the plane we had our passports and/or our boarding passes checked up to six times. Others had their bags checked through up to two times.

The layover in Brussels was just long enough to grab a sandwich and a quick view of the fabulous Belgian chocolate available.

As we travelled from the hotel in Delhi to Toronto, classmates were often discussing things they were missing from home or the contrast between what we have experienced over the past two weeks and what we were used to at home. The Indian food, organized chaos in traffic, the smog and the obvious signs of poverty were a few items some class members will not miss in Delhi & Mumbai, India. Some items they will miss are the overall experience and great hospitality of the citizens of India and of course the amazing camaraderie of the amazing group of people that make up AALP Class 14.

Great to be back to go to work for rural Ontario.
