Report on a trip to India.

Extracts from this document...


Chloe Marchant 10S Dear Sir/ Madam, I am writing to tell you about my recent four week trip to India which was on the 5th of January 2010. I flew with India air from Heathrow to Sri Lanka and then on to Delhi, the flight took around 10 hours. The meals on the aeroplane were very enjoyable; breakfast consisted of pancakes with golden syrup, Lunch was vegetable masala and for dinner a buffet containing a variety of Indian foods. Accompanying me on this wonderful experience were my Mother, Father, Sister and Grandma. Whilst in India, we also met up with our close family friends who live in England but originally come from India. They showed us around their country and gave us a tour of around the ?golden triangle? of India. Some of the most memorable places we visited whilst we were there were Kerala, Delhi, Aqra and Jaipur. We spent the first three days of our holiday in Kerala where we stayed at the ?Tall trees hotel? in the heart of the rainforest. ...read more.


After our second week spent in Agra, we traveled by train, boat and plane to reach the ancient city of Jaipur. Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan, it is part of the ?pink city.? Jaipur and the places around it are called the ?pink city? because of the special type of pink coloured rock that is found commonly there. This rock was used to make all of the buildings back in ancient times and still today, the city is full of amazing buildings. On our third day in Jaipur, we travelled 10 miles out of the city to Galta, an 18th century sacred site. We were given a tour all around this incredible site and at sunset we were taken to the ?monkey temple?. The sacred pools inside the temple were full of monkeys, these monkeys have been visiting the pools since the temple was first built and generations later, the same family of monkeys visit the temple every day at sunset. ...read more.


I throughly enjoyed my visit to india as it is very culturally different to England. My favorite part of my trip to India was visiting the elephant orphanage. The volunteers give up their time to help these creatures and this is an inspiration to me. I plan to visit India agin when i am 17 for one month and go on a volunteer programme the orphanage offers to students over the age of 17 as i think it would be a life changing experience. I think that I should win the holiday because I love to visit new places, make new friends and try new things. I will give everything a go and it would be an amazing opportunity. I hope you have enjoyed reading all about my time in India, and i would certainly recommend it to anyone who has not yet visited this beautiful and culturally diverse country. Your Sincerely, Chloe Marchant ...read more.
