Our trip to India

Today, we went on a cultural field trip. We visited the Radha Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork. It was a great activity. Especially on a day like today because it was the festival of lights where Diwali was being celebrated. We had spent the previous week looking on the internet at a map of India, as well as the animals that live there, the clothes people wear, and of course the beautiful scenery. Learning more about he country and the culture got the kids even more excited about visiting the Krishna Temple.

The event included live music, dancing, presentation on the temple and Hinduism, and a ceremony where offerings were brought to a live cow. It was pretty cool to see all of that.
Our evening ended with a delicious Indian meal at our favorite restaurant, the Bombay House.
