Last Days in Orchha

More of my favorite pictures from the Orchha Palace:

On our last day in Orchha we visit a local school in one of the primitive villages there. The children showed off their talents singing, and reciting poems.

One of the men demonstrated how they make pottery and we had an opportunity to try it ourselves.

Shopping was one of the activities the girls in the group really enjoyed. We make quick friends with the local vendors!

In keeping with days full of activities we also go to a local home for a cooking class for dinner. One of the qualities I most admire of the Indian culture is their hospitality. We were made to feel very welcomed and had a lovely time.
( Given the challenging nature of this trip I apologize now for the disjointed postings. As I blog post-trip it has been harder to keep track of events. Also, I will introduce you to my wonderful Intrepid traveling companions very soon.)
