When we started out with our unschooling journey, we felt a little like knights in shining armor freeing ourselves from our own self-imposed shackles. Hence the name of the blog.

Some pics finally






This last photo is of Ravi and the kids sleeping at 6 in the evening (their bodies are still on India time which would be 11ish). Then they woke up had lovely pita pocket dinners (filled with grilled Haloumi cheese, Homous and Salad) created by Chef Rishi and promptly went back to bed. We have all been waking up at 5 am.

Because our health has improved we decided to move into the hotel in London this evening. Ravi is at work today and will meet us at the hotel. This morning the kids and I had a lovely 2 hour walk around the local Headington streets. We visited a playground attached to a park that was divine. I mean it was glorious, crystal clear air, clean, full of autumn leaves, had old but sturdy playground equipment.... just wonderful. Kids were off and running and had a good time. We got snacks from a Waitrose (a supermarket chain) that sells ready, easy to eat foods... lots of yum soups etc.

We still have coughs but the sunshine and clear air was nice after being cooped up inside hospitals, airports, planes and homes for the last few days.

Hema,

I was wondering if you've ever heard of this place in Madikuri, Karnataka, called Rainforest Retreat? I saw something about it on an 'India Unveiled' programme here in Singapore and thought it looked like a wonderful place to take children.

The lady who owns it seems to be in love with outdoor education. I will try to look into it more and think about it as a destination for next year.
