Looking back on the past nine days has me with mixed feelings about this country. This has been by far the most challenging travel that I have done. Within this bubble of crazy experiences I have met some wonderful people; travelers and locals. I have much respect for the people of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. They live in the harshest of conditions in the desert. Their customs are rich with ancient Hindu and Muslim beliefs. Their temples and ancient ruins have stood for thousands of years. I find this really amazing especially with how fast things are changing with our global economy.
Goodbye India! May your rich traditions continue for eternity.
