About Me
Hallo, I'm Christina. I'm 18, soon to be 19 whilst I'm out here and my greatest loves in life are music and beer. I wanted to take a gap year to give me time to resit the exams I knew I would fail and to have an incredible adventure. I'm a small town girl and have lived in the same place all my life, so India seemed about the most colorful, beautiful and alien place for me to go.

Arrival in Chennai

Posted By Christina Hall on 03 Sep 2006
I am working for three months in Chennai for an organisation that uses music, dance and drama to aid the development of both adults and children with various learning and physical disabilities. The schools I work in have about 40 students in each (the main school is with children from about 3 and up and the second school is for teenagers and adults up to the age of about 55) but their outreach programmes benefit around 200 other special needs people in Chennai.

Indian Experience

Posted By Christina Hall on 02 Sep 2006
In terms of the Indian experience as a whole if I thought that my first few days here were eventful I was unprepared for the following few weeks! The amount of times I have been lost here I have stopped counting, but it's all part of the adventure so I have loved every minute of it! The main problem lies in the auto-rickshaw drivers; you tell them "I want to go to xyz" and they wobble their heads like dashboard buddies and so I have been assuming this means yes.
