ISSE Exchange with India Completed!
Written by Bethany

The day after Thanksgiving, the Bethany School ISSE (International School to School Experience) Delegation departed for New Delhi, India.  After over 24 hours of travel, they were greeted by an enthusiastic group of host families and  whisked away to their homes.  Thus began an incredible three week visit which was filled with hospitality, hard work, and visits to some amazing sights including the Taj Mahal!  Bal Bharati Public School in Pitampura should be congratulated for all the planning and the execution of an excellent itinerary.  Our delegation never felt so honored and special before.  The welcome assembly alone was an impressive display of song and traditional dances.  They planned trips to the Lotus Temple, Akshardham, Iskcon Temple, Dilli Haat Market, a Marble Market, and Qutub Minar.  The delegation was treated to special lunches throughout the visit planned and prepared by grade 3-5 classes.  And, the host families went above and beyond to care for every need.  It was an experience of a lifetime for all involved.
