Namaste

When the Bollywood-fantastic Jai Ho scene at the end of “Slumdog Millionaire” moved me to tears, my curiosity about India spiked to near obsession: I knew I had to visit, and soon. Next week I'm taking off on a 3 week adventure to India and Nepal with a dear friend, and I can barely calm my overwhelmed and anxious heart.

While I don't have any preconceived notions of this journey, I'm sure to witness every extreme imaginable. There's also something about travel that incessantly reminds me, regardless of schooling [both university and hard knocks], how much I have yet to learn; nothing compares to the awareness and education gained from visiting a foreign country. I promise to share all the ups and downs upon return, but this blog will be in great hands in the meantime. So stay tuned and phir milenge, friends!

Oh my gosh, three weeks! And yet, it probably won't feel like enough time to see it all. Have a wonderful time, Court! Bring back some awesome souvenirs. :)
