  • This Isn't the End, But You Can See it From Here.

    Travel Journal from India Udaipur, India | Wed Jul 18, 2012

    I have only two weeks left in India. The thought is very upsetting, and the reality of it is rather worse. I’ve gotten used to the brand of crazy that one finds here, complete with pushy rickshaw drivers, spontaneous downpours that seem to wash away the world and cows wandering the streets at all hours of the morning. I don’t want to have to say goodbye to the people that …

  • Happy Thai New Year!

    Travel Journal from Thailand Chiang Mai, Thailand | Mon Apr 16, 2012

    Yesterday was the last day of Songkran, the three-day celebration for the Thai New Year, which happens on the 13th through 15th of April.  This festival is celebrated most elaborately in Chiang Mai, the second largest city of Thailand located in the North.  I happened to be fortunate enough to be amidst the rambunctious festivities in this culture-rich city.  For three days straight, no one attends school or work and …

    Travel Journal from India Delhi, India | Sat Mar 31, 2012

I would be lying if I said that I didn’t want to leave.  …

  • From New York to India and Back Again

    Travel Journal from United States United States | Wed Jul 21, 2010

    Since I did not have reliable internet access in India, I wasn't able to update this journal while in India. These are, therefore, my reflections. I had no idea what to expect and was surprised to make lifelong friendships and have spectacular life-changing experiences in as little as two weeks. When my plane landed in Delhi, my domestic flight was cancelled and I almost freaked out. Luckily, I met two …

  • “Week Two (June 14th- June 20th, 2009): Coping with the Unfamiliar ”

    Travel Journal from India Mysore, India | Sun Jun 21, 2009

    Gloves on, hair up, sunscreen applied, our construction duties continue. Knees bending, muscles aching, skin burning, one rock at a time, doubts filled our mind when we would analyze the layout of the future classroom. From the beginning, we had vague and insufficient guidance from the school principal, the construction workers, and from our internship director. To make matters worse, there was a scarcity of tools and the absence of …
