Our time in India – Vivienne & Helena, Germany

Our names are Vivienne and Helena and we came to India for 4 weeks because we wanted to get an insight into Indian culture.

Many of you might be aware of the FSL-India team’s visit to Shekar Shetty Uncle’s farm every July to do rice plantation.

The fields will be soaked during the months of July and August.
