It’s Great to be Back

The last time I wrote, I was halfway around the world in New Delhi, India. A few days had passed since our place touched down for the last stop on my BRIC adventure, but we still had three weeks to go. In the two months since, I’ve had the opportunity to explore New Delhi and…

Studying Abroad on BRIC!

Greetings from New Delhi, India! As October comes to a close and Babson students prepare for the second half of their semester, I wanted to share my experiences from the Babson BRIC program.

So we did! You can catch the FULL recap here: #babsonchat.…

It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Later!

“Yeah, we’ll be in St.Petersburg in 24 hours.” “Wow, that’s crazy!” “Tell me about it.” Insert a different city name every two weeks and that would be an accurate depiction of what life was like for us nineteen baboons. We soon learned a thing or two about contorting ourselves to fit into whatever plane, train…

Bal Ashram Adventure

  “These have been the two best days in India so far”, said BRIC student Greg Gonzalez. These words uttered by Greg were also uttered by many other BRIC students in regard to our Bal Ashram visit. To begin the Bal Ashram was a place where former Child laborers were rescued and given a chance…

Parade Crashing

Being denied transportation to our wanted destination by autos (rickshaws) to a holiday celebration of huge burning evil spirit replicas… (Yes, fire does fascinate us) we were instead consumed by a parade that flooded past our hotel. They came just in time, as most of us were ready to go back into the hotel and…

Old Delhi

On Monday, October 29th, we had a scavenger hunt in small groups in Old Delhi.  Old Delhi was a bit different from what we have gotten used to over our past week living in New Delhi.  My group headed there on the very crowded metro with only our scavenger hunt sheet to guide us.  Upon…
