Construction/Environment/Tibetan Culture in Dharamshala

Wall paintingFrom the 3rd of March to the 23rd of March, we had two volunteers from the United States participate in a Construction/Environment/Tibetan Culture themed workcamp in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh. Even though it was a small group, our two team leaders aided the two international volunteers to achieve satisfaction and fulfilment that they sought through volunteerism.They actively took part in various activities including painting a school wall and black board, and educational drawing at Dharamkot Government Primary School.

The two motivated volunteers conducted sessions on health and hygiene awareness to the school children, and almost 40 children benefited from this activity. The volunteers also cleaned an open field located in McLeodganj along with the staff from a local NGO called Waste Warriors, with an aim to promote awareness among the local community in keeping their surroundings clean.

As part of their inter-cultural learning, the volunteers had the opportunity to interact with Tibetan monks. They also took part in a Tibetan cooking session. Although the volunteers were busy doing all of these activities, they had just enough spare time at the end of their stay to take part in a site seeing excursion to a Hindu temple, Baghsu waterfalls, Dalai Lama Temple, the Tibet Museum, and the Tibetan Children’s Village community. The volunteers also did a presentation about their country traditions and cultural aspects for the school children.

Indian takeover of Las Vegas gaming industry

by gcod_

The Las Vegas gaming company I work in has several new managers from India all of them on H1 visas and they are hiring a lot of programmers in India also and training them in the work we are doing here.
It's not as much fun working for Indian managers who look over your shoulder every five minutes and ask you what you are doing. Soon every programmer will have to work as hard as an H1 in order to keep his/her job.
Then there is the cultural thing, Indian people worship cows and pigs and only eat vegetarian food, it is a horrible sign of things to come.

Recomended Guide Books for Hawaii?

My family is just begining to plan for our first trip to Hawaii. We want couple of good guide books to help us plan everything. Where to stay, what to do, etc.

There are so many books out there, I was hoping someone would have a suggestion to help us.

Thanks in advance!

It depends on which island you're going to. This should help you get started:

when you get to the baggage claim area, or front airport lobbies, they have tons of Free brochures (some with discount coupons)! Taxi's are too expensive, look in one of the free brochure's for a round trip Shuttle service.

have fun and Aloooooooooooooooooooooha! :o)
p.s. our avatars look almost the same, lol

Use travel guides to estimate costs of activities.

Use travel sites to estimate costs for hotels, but you are better off booking through a hotel website and not a travel website. For example:

$50 per day (or part of a day) per person for meals.

Remember to budget for airport transfers and local transportation (ex. taxis).


Citizens of about 35 countries can travel to the USA for up to 90 days at a time as a tourist or for some business purposes by registering for ESTA > before < their trip begins. The…
