India Volunteer 2013-14
Hi everybody. I am Maddy Pauchet from Paris, France where I have lived for most of life, other than a brief 5-year stint in Amsterdam (it felt short). I'm half-American, but I have never lived in the US. I have an older sister, Alix, and a younger brother, Ben, and all three of us will be on different continents next year. Though I've been to India twice before, I have never been to Varanasi, and I am excited to rediscover the smells, spices, colors (and yaks) that I've carried with me since. I have spent most of the summer reading Indian literature in preparation to this trip, and I've allowed myself the luxury of a few more volumes to lug around in my stuffed backpack.
