Window shutters on a house in Chennai.

Daily life

These particular journal entries illustrate Indian lifestyle. They highlight daily ins and outs that illustrate Indian culture.

The Indian way of life is far different than anything I had previously experienced. There is constant activity, day and night. The sheer number of people is incredible and often overwhelming. No words exist that can fully explain the generosity of the people. Throughout the noise, chaos, and poverty, there is a contagious energy.
