As requested, the truck driver arrived more or less at the time we asked him to. That’s a big achievement in India! It took at least 2 hours to move the stuff in the truck. Everyone was there to help. Step by step, the rooms were completely emptied. Everything was ready to go. But another work waited us: cleaning the rooms. It took a while to clean everything correctly. Then, the rooms were completely empty. There was nothing… It was an emotional moment to leave Dal Lake, a place full of life and memories. When seeing the empty rooms, I thought we couldn’t leave without keeping visual souvenirs of the Dal Lake house. I hope these photos I took will keep the memories alive

After taking a last look at the empty rooms, we left the office to carry everything to the new buildings. The truck driver brought us to the ‘Blue house’ where all the personal stuff from interns of the Dal Lake house waited for us. Few minutes of effort and the work was done. The move ended. It was exhausting but it was an amazing experience to move a whole office and an entire apartment with the other interns. It was a good way to reinforce teamwork spirit in Naddi. It offered us the opportunity to discover everything that past interns left for us, intentionally or not. And it remind us some great moments we had in Dal Lake, like the last BBQ party we had.
