Today, we had a tour of India. We ate at a buffet restaurant called Spring. Their food was delicious. THen, we went to our first stop, to meet the tour guide. We went to a place called Qutbminar. In this area, they had the tallest building made of limestone. It was 5 stories tall. People can't go inside because of an incident that happened to children. There were also lots of arches too. On them, there were Arabic sentences written on the arches. I also got to see a big well for water. Now, people use it for garbage. We went to other monuments too. We went to the president's house. In India, the president is symbolic. THe person who has lots oof power is the prime minister who is named Narendra Modi. There was an east and west side of the president's house. We also saw Narendra Modi's office. Another place we went to was the Lotus Flower Temple. There are people who come early in the morning just to meditate for 2 and a half hours. The person who built the temple designed it as a lotus flower because it is a symbol of peace. One of the other places we went to, but not the last, was Kashmir Cashmere. It was a store to buy carpets. They make carpets out of silk, yak, and cashmere. They showed us how they make the carpets. We also drank some yellow hot tea. It was extremely tasty. THen, we bought a carpet that costs $800. It was made of silk and cahmere. Then, we dropped off our tour guide at his stop, and went back to Raddison Blu. We couldn't decide where to eat, so we ordered room service for dinner and went to bed.
