Taj Mahal Painted Pink

The Taj Mahal is a monument I did not even try to conjure up how would look in person. Similar to before I saw Machu Picchu, I knew what to expect but I also did not. You never know how a monumental piece from history will deliver in peron; on a visual ... Read more >

Dalai Lama and some momos on the side

INDIA | Thursday, 14 May 2009 | Views [458]

Long last, arriving in Dharamsala felt sooooo good. After twisty turny roads up and down and all around through the mountains just standing stationary felt excellent. Immediately upon pulling up to our hotel we ran into the other Irish kids who also ... Read more >

It went as follows: Lucy, knocking once, twice (short grumble), three times finally rouses me enough so that I can respond. "Okay. thank you. I'm up." MY head collapses back into my pillow. 'The silk sleep sheets we purchased were great buys,' ... Read more >

A shower. A nap. A map. A bite. At our quick breakfast nosh (as Alex likes to call a small bite) we met two Parisians; two girls that spoke English well and had been in India for 1 month already. A plan was drafted: we would meet later for dinner or to ... Read more >
