The Bangalore bun was my favorite part because it tasted like a fried pancake made out of banana bread.

What music did I listen to this week?:

This week I listened to a lot of P!nk and a Hindi song called "Laila Main Laila" on repeat. "Laila Main Laila" is in a commercial that comes up at least once every time I watch TV and it is super catchy.

What activity was the most fun this week?:

Celebrating Pongal was the highlight of my week and one of the highlights of my time in India. I got to celebrate with everyone who lives here that I have come to consider family. Learning about the holiday as a member of the family was an unforgettable experience, and I got to spend the four days off of school with great friends.

What did I read this week?:

I forgot my book when I went to school, so most of my reading was the news. I studied political science in college and I want to work in government when I return to the U.S. This week, I was focussed on following the announcements from Democratic candidates for President of the U.S.

What games or sports did I play this week?:

I played Simon Says with the students at school and I played with bubbles with my host baby, Diya, for a couple hours during the Pongal holidays.

Other news from this week:

I got invited to the Vice Principal-in-Charge of my school's daughter's wedding! The wedding is in February and all of the teachers are invited. Now I need to go shopping for a saree to give as a wedding gift!
