From there we traveled by auto rickshaw to our home for the next week, Heranjal. We first stopped at the school and after a warm welcome by the children of the village we headed Krishna’s House (Klub Krishna). We had homestay orientation, and learned some usefull words in Kannada (The native language of Heranjal). After a delicious lunch eaten on Banana leaves and a proper lesson on how to eat with our hands we met our homestay families. Although our first few minutes with the families were a little awkward we quickly bonded over card games and handshakes.
We came back to Klub Krishna and learned about the Yakshagana dance we will be performing at the end of our stay. The day was filled with new experiences, new worries and new hopes , and we all are incredibly happy the village is taking us in and we can’t wait to get to know our homestays.
(PS. Brianna wants to wish a happy 10th birthday to her brother Ethan!)

I am sure this is a great experience for these young people. In today's world they need renewing of the mind & away from all these electronic devices that rob them of spiritual awareness.
