My India experience

January 2008. I spent the month in India taking a course studying the religions, people, and culture. During that time, I kept a daily journal. I wanted to remember every smell, every person, every sunset, every last detail of each day. This site is a compilation of my personal journal entries.

I hope through sharing my insights, emotions, and experiences you will better understand Indian culture. My perspective is that of an American and is reflected in my entries. Throughout my journal entries you will experience a range of emotions. At times I was inspired, tired, frustrated, confused, and motivated. Beyond just facts, I provide you with an honest account of my India experience.
