|Some of the team at Rock Garden|
Chandigarh is known for its urban planning (it was the first planned city after independence) and architecture. An architect named Le Corbusier built the Rock Garden, a large labyrinth-like park constructed of rock and recycled materials (porcelain, glass, concrete, etc). The Rock Garden had lots of sculptures and various rock formations and was an interesting use of recyclable materials in urban space.

|Delicious street food|
The driving here is definitely more intense and nerve-wracking that most countries I have been to. Cars squeeze into seemingly nonexistent spaces, and there are often 3 lanes of cars on a 2 lane road. Horns are used to communicate regularly (i'm passing you, watch out I'm coming, don't move left, speed up, etc).
|Weighing some oranges|
On the way back to the hotel, we stopped at a stand on the roadside and bought fresh-squeezed orange juice. It was so delicious one team member bought some oranges to take home and got to weigh it on this awesome scale.
