Welcome to India!

India. The name itself is somewhat mysterious and provokes many thoughts and images. From the beginning, people who had previously sailed on the voyage told us that India would be the most "difficult" country we would visit. While there is a rich history and breathtaking beauty, there is also astonishing poverty and dispare. As one of the professors on the voyage put it, "India is a hard country". I think both Shelley and I were a bit apprehensive about India as we had no idea what to expect. One of the oldest countries, India had a lot to show us and we had a lot to learn.

India definitely lived up to its reputation as we saw some of the most amazing sights and had experiences that we are still trying to process.
