Switzerland GSE : Day 10 Monday 7th June

Yeah Baby…reached double digits….but have not yet crossed the half way mark….I am loosing count of days now..first few days we use to announce…day 1…day 2…day 3….now we dont know wht day it is anymore…the days are all merging into one another…..

Today was a rainy day….i was to go jogging in the woods in the morning with my host but that did not happen…we were to go to mount pilatis but that did not happen…:( so we went for a city tour…..saw the bridges and the history of the city and a lot of sights where bollywood movies have been shot……

We then had lunch in an indian resturant…..was nice….but very heavy…if u see indian food you tend to over eat……all the dal and the chicken gravy …the aaloo baigan….the egg curry the corn palak..the lassi….the raqs malai…gets too much……….but it was nice!

We then went for a two hour boat ride in the lake…….beautiful weathre…no sun so it was nice chilly and windy….nice sights….soothing water…

We then went shopping with my host…and she bought me soooo many gifts….she is soo very sweet…i dont know how to thank her enough…..it is so wonderful…they open their homes…they open their hearts to us….you actully feel like family…..it is amazing….I feel so small in givnig the little gifts i have brough for them from India….I wish I had brough some more stuff…..I have to write a detailed post on how i relate to familes who are actully to differnt from us and yet so same…..GSE is indeed an amazing program…

We came home had about 30 mins to check mail and get dressed up and then went out to dinner to an fancy Italian restaurant with the host family….had some raviloli filled with spinach…some soup and then they celebrated my being  with  them with a tiramisu which came with sparklers and music after the lights were dimmed in the restaurant…it came as a major surprise for me…as i did not realize when they arranged it with the staff as they were talking in german! It was super cute! 🙂

Was a nice day..i was suppose to crash early….cause have to go for a jog in the woods tomo morning….but as usual that is not happening…i am in major tension for my last 3 days…need to plan out something asap…tomo maybe…..
