Goats, Monkeys, and Elephants Oh My!
So I have arrived home from India, but I wrote a few entries during my time:
I’m about one week into my India Adventure! It has been great so far. I first arrived in Delhi. It was miserably hot and humid. One day the humidity was 75-80%! Each city in India has its own flavor – just as you would expect in the US. Delhi, in my opinion, has a much more visible Colonial influence than some of the other cities. I pride myself in my sense of direction, but it is completely gone here! Especially in Delhi – there are round-a-bouts every turn. I can never tell if I am going one direction or another.
While driving around the city it is fun to try a spot a new animal. I feel like my friends who grew up in the city and get excited when they see a deer – I’m a foreigner getting excited at every monkey I see! In certain parts of the city you will see all sorts of furry friends with each other. On one street corner I saw monkeys, pigs, and a cow. The highlight of my I-Spy adventure was elephants! They like to congregate by water and we saw them in the small space right by a river. I had to take some action shots from my phone!
I’m looking forward to seeing the other cities of India … and their cooler temperatures.
