Deepavali comes around again! First Grade Field trip to Little India

October 7, 2009

Starting to feel like we live here.  When you see the same celebrations from last year you know you’ve seen the full cycle of Singapore life.

Today I joined Ben and his class on a field trip to Little India.  Deepavali will be in full swing next week but Little India is gearing up now.  The lights, the decorations, the flowers, the smells, the curry!  Here are some highlights from our time there:
