First, a little background:
Every year, Girl Scouts around the world participate in Thinking Day, which is when we recognize and honor our sisters in every country.
For my Service Unit, this means an event at which troops set up a booth representing a chosen country.
This year, we decided upon India, which is home to Sangam — one of the World Centres of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). The Centre is situated on the banks of the Mula River in Pune, 190km (120m) from Mumbai (formerly Bombay), in the state of Maharashtra, India.
At our last few meetings, we’ve learned about our sister Scouts, and how they’re organized in India. We’ve created a snazzy tri-fold display for our booth. And tonight, we sampled Indian food, danced to some popular Bollywood songs and decorated our hands with “henna” body art.
I use the quotes because instead of actual henna, we used glitter, as some kids can be allergic to or adversely affected by actual henna.
Anyway, here are some photos from tonight. Click on them to enlarge:

I look forward to your girls teaching us all of your awesome dance moves next weekend (sans you and Tootie, apparently)?
Oh, we’ll be there! Not sure about that whole dancing part though!
The girls had so much fun. Thanks Cathy!
Ever since your blog about Rick always getting your back side, I can’t help myself!
Don’t worry — I’m used to it!
Looks like a lot of fun. Wish I could have been there to enjoy it. Your dad always got my backside in his photos too.
Looks like fun! I can’t wait until Alaina is old enough to join Girl Scouts!
