How Was India? My Trouble In Answering That Question
Published on November 16, 2011
Good question! New York is pretty new for me, so I'll be sticking here for a bit. On my list are Peru, Rwanda, Tibet and Japan. But also I need to go back to India, cause I'm hooked, and there are huge parts of the country I haven't seen.
Emily, I love the game "How's Yours" http://matadornetwork.com/life/7-boardless-cardless-games-to-play-anywhere/ and love even more that you framed this post around it. Great capture of mood and tone.
Good piece. India is very difficult to describe to people, mainly because it is the extremes of so many sides of humanity. And it's not easy to just say I liked it or didn't like it. It's a place not to judge, but just to experience.
wonderful post that touches light on a complex subject, however I feel like it all becomes clear with - “My sweat smelled like curry!” Love this!
It heartens me to read the perspective of a young woman so willing to explore life with honesty, humility and keen sense of adventure. Beautifully written, too.
I'm glad you can relate. There should be support groups for coming home from India (and many other places), for people to just gather and say, "that was so crazy."
