During the last day of my internship, we visited the National Zoological Park in Delhi with all of the teachers. We discussed how there are many places on the zoo grounds with still water; areas that could possibly harbor diseases such Dengue Fever. We also focused on the beauty of the zoo. It was really awesome, and had many fascinating animals, including monkeys, rhinos, tigers and deer.
Afterward touring the zoo, we went back to the IGIB campus with plans to tour the Lotus Temple. However, our plans unexpectedly changed when the auto-rickshaw driver hijacked us and brought us to a store inside a gated area. Basically, he informed us that he would take us to the private store where we were to buy something, and he would get a percentage of the profits. Following his instruction, we then bargained for some souvenirs and Dr. Chris Pierret will be picking up a custom tailored suit on Monday! This was definitely an interesting and new experience for me! Finally, we finished what should have been a 5 minute ride.
We then toured the Lotus Temple which was a massive temple that had 9 pools and a gigantic area for prayer. Afterwards, we went to the Khan Temple where we viewed the many beautiful pieces of architecture and visited the area of prayer.
