Visiting Colleges around Trichy

sunny 82 °F

We visited two colleges - a mixed college and an all girls college.

At the mixed college we talked to young english literature students our age who were interested to hear what our country was like. We talked of Shakespeare and Jane Austen, but they had trouble speaking english in broken tongue. One of the guys asked me if I wrote poetry. I laughed - sometimes. He asked if I could write him a love poem - so I scrawled out a few short verses and signed it. He was beaming. We all took photographs together and headed over to the girls math college for lunch.

The all girls college was a much different vibe. We were in a giant gymnasium with rowed chairs and a giant stage. All the girls would crowd around us giggling. As if a 3:33 guy to girl ratio on this trip wasn't enough! There were literally hundreds of girls. Some of them preformed more traditional dances while a few of them preformed a dark mime skit to blaring music. It was quite the experience.

At the end they invited us on stage to preform along with them. I went all in and danced wildly front and center stage. Everyone was cheering for us. In return, we had to preform something. We looked around and decided. We're singing Ain't No Mountain High. It was a struggle, but we had a lot of fun - even if it was off tune!
