Our 6th grade trip to Hampi will definitely be very memorable. We brought back so many memories, new friendships, and different experiences; all the way from hiking up a hill, to knitting with banana leaves. This trip was definitely a great end to a long term and year! We saw a lot of different exquisite flora and fauna like Sloth bears and Spur Fowls (not to mention we saw and learned how to make snake trails!)We also planted plants with an expert. We saw many banana plantations and rice plantations on our way to the crafts village in a tractor! In the crafts village, we bought woven-banana-leaf things for us and our family. The infrastructure over there was breathtaking, we saw extremely old temples, buildings, secret passageways, and wells. We had an amazing treasure hunt – going under and overall these ancient infrastructures! We also became archeologists for a day, finding artifacts in our allotted area. We had to dig A LOT and record it. We got some delicious traditional food made by the locals over there and got some refreshing coconut water and harvested baby bananas. We made many fun memories in our bus and in our rooms. We vlogged a lot and we played loud music with speakers on the bus – I swear the teachers got annoyed! On the last day, almost every single person got sick. While teachers were helping people, the 2 or 3 people who weren’t sick did everything they could to help. We came back with many life – learnings, lessons and most important of all FRIENDSHIPS and different experiences with cultures! I doubt anyone in our grade will ever forget this fun-filled memory!!! Thank You for this wonderful experience! Our 6th grade trip to Hampi will definitely be very memorable.
