i’m quite certain we’ll never be able to accurately describe day one in delhi, a city of 22 million.
the contradicting emotions we felt, the things we saw, the food we tasted, the cultural differences we observed and endured, the people we met and new things we learned.
today was unlike any other day in my life. d’s life. that, i know for a fact.
we’re exhilerated and exhausted, but excited for more.

    This is fascinating!! I’ve heard stories about traveling in India. Are you in one of the states where alcohol is banned? How’s the food?? Yum! And yes, the floral loaner robe is much more on trend;)
