"I remember that the first time we told local shopkeepers and community members that we were staying for nine months, they thought we had misspoken in our broken Hindi. "You mean nine days or nine weeks," they'd reply. It was beautiful to watch them realize over the course of our stay that we weren't just tourists passing through, but students and volunteers who cared about forming lasting relationships in our new home." > Katie Horvath, Bridge Year India 2010-2011
