India Independence Day

Indian Independence Day was on Thursday this week. We had the school day off and the school took us to a place called Ideal Beach Resort. The rooms we borrowed for showering off the sand and changing and other beach stuff, was really big. It was definitely a good spot to be and play on the beach. The worst part was when my dad and I started playing with the Arobie and about 5 minutes later it vanished into the waves never to be seen again. I still had lots of fun. I tried to make a mini-pool out of sand so the littler kids would be distracted and not knock over my sand castles. (Yes I know i am getting to old for that. No I am not. Don’t even think that.) It was a pain rebuilding them. It took about half the day and I still didn’t complete it. Stupid waves kept ruining it. But I find the most fun in trying to complete it before the waves ruin it. That beach gave my parents time away from me. All parents need that at some point. It was good to be playing in the sun with your shirt off and not have it raining. Grace period was from about 8:00 A.M – 3:00 P.M. Then came the downfall again. Having a good time came with consequences. I got a sun burn. It was totally my fault although my mom says otherwise. It has been 3 days and it still hurts. Well that’s what I get for being arrogant.

My Summer

During my summer we went through the U.S visiting relatives and my parents friends. Everything was nice and normal until we got to Rochester, New York. The first few days were good. We were relaxing then the visa place ruined everything. My dad had to go to San Fransisco for 1 1/2 weeks. It was annoying because then we didn’t get to leave until the end of my summer break. When we got here I only had 2 days of vacation left. The good times were in Petersburg, Alaska and Seattle, Washington. My dad and I won the blindfold rowboat race. The best time i had though was in Seattle. Once we went to this restaurant for breakfast and I ordered their special. It was a delicious crepe. It had chocolate and melted marshmallows and the inside the had a coating of chocolate syrup and whipped cream. Maple syrup was optional. It was the best breakfast ever. Especially since after that I had 2 plate of 10 pieces of bacon. I want to eat that again. It is called Citizen. It is on Queen Ann Hill. There are more in Chicago and DC.

Coming into India

India is a way different climate than what i am used to. I am used to cold and dry but here it is moist and hot so the really hot days in Mongolia are a little cooler than India but it feels 5x as hot. I love India compared Mongolia. Here are my reasons.

The House: The House is a two story house with a way to the roof. There are 4 Bedrooms (4th is a guest possibly going to be theater room.) Each Bedroom has their own bathroom (finally). We are enclosed in walls. We have our own great driver that everyone knows and likes. We have a cleaner that cooks and obviously cleans. 1 big kitchen. A yard and I believe we have, 4 balcony’s.

The School:                                                                                                                    The School is huge. It is the biggest school I have been in. The food is way better than that of Mongolia. The Schedule is also the weirdest i have seen yet. Everything is cheap compared to Mongolia. Friendly teachers. The one thing I dislike about this year is that we must always use technology. That is coming from some who likes technology.
