On our last day in Kerala we had a goodby-event with our frinds from SCM. After packing our luggage we went to SCM Keralas house in Trivandrum.
At the stairs students from all over the region where waiting for us. First we exchanged information about Germany, ESG Bonn and SCM Kerala. Afterwords we had a lively discussion about the SDGs and the situataion in both countries.
Becoming hungry from alle the discussion we had a big lunch together with the students. They perpared a lot of different curries, masalas and sauces for us.
In the afternoon a local music group played folk songs and the students invited us to dance. We will never forget this warm welcoming by our friends in south india.
Sadly we had to leave soon after to get our train back to Bengalore. Now we will ride it for 16 hours until we reach Bengalore. In the train we use the time to chat and enjoy chai until we will fall asleep.
