Taj Mahalin’

In India, I have been teaching the cutest boys some Maths and English. Yeah, in India they call math maths. These boys are so eager to learn! We have played hangman about countries and colors and animals. We have played addition, subtraction, and multiplication games with simple numbers like 10 and 4. Here is a picture of the boys 🙂

We also were lucky enough to go to Agra, Uttar Pradesh this past weekend. This is the place of the Taj Mahal. We learned a bit of the monument’s history. The king of the Mogul Empire, Shah Jahan, had a wife who he loved so much that when she died giving birth to their 14th child, he decided to build the prettiest shrine as a graveyard for her tomb.

 

I cant believe I am heading back to the States in just 10 short days. Bittersweet!
