Okay so India is way harder than I thought. The air pollution is heavy, it’s loud, dusty, and the cultural differences are huge. I’ve learned a lot so far and am extremely humbled. Between the chaos, there are pockets of serenity. Community, togetherness, and kindness are abundant here. Life is louder, but simpler. Cows, dogs, and monkeys line the streets hoping for a morsel of food. The air is heavy with aromatic spices, and the clothes are vibrant and colorful. I really love it here so far. I realize how much I take for granted back in the states. I’ve realized a lot of the things I have are unnecessary and how many complaints I have had are trivial. I feel like my perspectives have been shaken up. India is cool. :) Here is a sweet street cow.
