Day 192Working away at the Golden Temple in Amritsar, India.

Upwards of 100,000 free meals are served here daily.

There is an incredible sense of community in holiest shrine of the Sikh religion and the world’s largest free kitchen.  Volunteerism is key – whether fixing a stool or cleaning bowls.  I sat down with a similar group of ladies and partook in bowl cleaning.  Perched on tiny stools, we rubbed some sort of sandy dirt around the surface of the bowls with our bare hands.
