a typical day in the student kingdom
(jeez, I wish I knew!)
seriously, it's a great question. I've been working for two years on a simple reply to what seems like a simple query.
the problem is that our days are so varied and unpredictable here that there really -- to borrow a quote from the Josh Lyman character on The West Wing -- "is no typical day. you have plans at 7 a.m. and by 9 a.m. they've all been blown to hell."
don't despair, though -- I promise I'm still trying to formulate what IS a typical day, here.
in the meanwhile, we're preparing for a large course (more than 200 students from all over the world coming) over the Christmas season.
during the course times, we often look like the photo I've posted in this entry. sitting as a large and colorful group, waiting patiently (or not!) for our teacher to come & lecture.
it's pretty idyllic -- palm trees, breezes blowing, the gorgeous mandir (temple) building in the background....
