Photo Essay: Incredible India
Driving through India was incredible, I couldn’t bear to blink for fear that I might miss something amazing. I peered out of the window the entire time, from New Delhi to Agra to Jaipur to Himachal Pradesh, and all the way up the mountains to McLeodanj where the Dalai Lama lives.
I saw some amazing things: the romantic Taj Mahal, glimpses of colorful saris in the streets, and friendly Indian smiles. I saw some crazy things: a camel and elephant waiting at a stop light in traffic and hostile monkeys that you can’t make eye contact with. I also saw some heartbreaking things: a young girl crying because she was being married to a man she had never met and an elderly man who fell off his bike in the midst of busy traffic and bled onto the street. Each moment added something not only to my experience, but to my understanding of life in India and even life itself.
