Field Trip – Holy Family Asha Niwas

An outing: six of the girls from Holy Family, a visiting colleague from the US, and yours truly went to the Nehru Museum and Planetarium last Saturday.  I take as many girls as my car can hold (six if they’re older, eight if they’re little) on different outings when they are not in school.


On other days we’ve been to factories, parks, the Purana Quila, restaurants, offices, historical sights, a hotel and a very cool indoor climbing wall.

But this time we chose the Nehru Museum, had a picnic, and visited the Planetarium for a sky show.  It was a lovely group  and a lovely day. The museum is huge and rather stately – filled mostly with photos, letters, newspaper articles, and household memorabilia from Jawaharlal Nehru.  The girls moved slowly, taking in every display and artifact.  The skyshow – in Hindi – capped it off.

My colleague Kim accompanied us – the girls love having new faces.
