Despite having all our paper work in place,
sometimes officialdom seems to stop you.
But as the Indian Army sign outside Durbuk says,
Never Give Up.
It took a phone call to the DC before the Taxi Union representative believed our paperwork allowing us to pass the check post with a load carrier full of hockey equipment.
But over we went. And down into the beautiful village of Shayok. Made more beautiful by the smiles on the kids faces once they donned hockey gear and learnt the ins and outs of street hockey.

In between hockey games, there was plenty of time for Kayla and Debbie to teach all the kids and teachers "rainbow looming." While even the 3 year old's enjoyed making bracelets, they were learning patterning and colours. A great precursor to maths. The older ones worked on looms - plenty of problem solving there. And dozens of excellent concept maths books, games and puzzles were shared with teachers.
Mr. Crow? He came all the way from the Kootenays. Every hockey team needs a mascot after all.
