About Me
Hi, I’m Briony and I’m living in Pune for two months working with slum children and teaching them English. I am then then going to New Delhi to work in the community hospital for a month. I decided to take a gap year before starting university to experience different customs and to live in a culture so very different to my own. Briony

On friday afternoon Pady and I met and took the train from Pune to Mumbai. It was a four hour train journey but we were in the AC carriage and it was very comfortable. At the station we met one of our friends who we have made whilst living here in Pune and we all took a taxi to our hotel. I was a bit worried about the hotel as they didnt take my name when I rang up to book it they just said that it would be fine..
