India Summer 2016: Day 6 – First Day in Chennai

In 2016 we are leading 4 high school summer trips. You can read all about our Global Innovators trips or get in touch to ask us any questions about the programs. Our 2016 India trip focuses on global healthcare, technology, and innovation. During the trip, students take turns writing a daily blog post to describe their project process and exploration, follow along here. On Sunday, we flew to Chennai from Bangalore. After arriving, we went to lunch and then visited the Shore Temple. The Temple was really pretty and lunch was delicious. After the Temple, we headed to the beach resort and even though it wasn’t on the beach, it was still amazing. All of us ate, but Kelsey and I accidentally slept through the first ten minutes of dinner. After dinner, we swam in the pool and that was really fun. Then, we all went to bed. Today, the idea of possibly utilizing or tapping into the religious leaders in a community to promote healthful habits occurred to me. Also, when Adam would say that locals would want to take pictures with us, I didn’t believe him but I was proved wrong. Lots of locals wanted to take pictures of us and a few with us. Something unexpected today was all of the publicity we got at the Shore Temple ruins.
