    The Most Amazing Place I've Ever Been

    --and I'm a traveler! We mainly stuck around Delhi and Mussoorie, in the foothills of the Himalayas.  It was monsoon season but still GORGEOUS, and we still got glimpses of the snow-peaks once in a while. There was a lot of poverty and pain like I expected, but it was still...

    Madras

    I went to India on a missions trip in my early twentys. Loved it. Rolling hills, natural beauty and the people were kind. Not to mention if you are a white american and overweight, you are SEXY there. I had to admit, it is pretty flattering to get that many marraige proposals...
