It was Sunday and we woke up at around 8 ‘o’ clock. We got ready and as it were Dusshera, so I explained Anki and Laura (my guests) about the history and significance of this festival and then we had our breakfast nearly at 11:30 a.m. we left for school as the school had arranged a farmhouse party for our German guests. As soon as everybody reached the school, we left for the spot where the party was arranged. The place was quite good with a big garden, a small lake and a boat inside. Everyone was happy seeing this and went for boating. Then the owner of the farmhouse took us all around the village on his tractor. He showed us a dairy farm and told us many new things. It was a new experience for all of us; even the people of the village were excited to see the Germans and accompanied them all along the way. . On returning back to the farmhouse, we served our guests with Indian snacks and drinks. Then we all left back for the school and went back to our home. We were so happy that day and enjoyed a lot.
