After all of my posts on India, I am left with a sense of awe. We went not knowing what to expect, a little worried and questioning if it was the right trip for us.
India is a full-on, visual assault. People, activity, honking, smells, traffic, chaos, laughter, despair – all these words describe it. But in the end, I think I would trend toward words like ‘vibrant’ and ‘colorful’ as the ones that truly capture India.
Yes, I think the right word is “colorful”.
It is not for everyone. It is definitely not for the first time or unseasoned traveler.
Personally, I cannot wait to go back.
Thanks for sharing your impressions! Cheers!
Michael, I’ve enjoyed your photos and comments from India. I understand what you mean about being eager to go back. I will soon publish my memoir of my 24 years in Nigeria. I’m blogging now about the country,including occasional notes about the kidnapped and still missing girls, and posting a few excerpts from my book. I wish I had your photography skills! I hope you’ll look at my blog at catherineonyemelukwe.com.
Thanks Catherine. Sounds like a wonderful adventure and I will take a look!
