  1. The friends of mine who have had the opportunity of spending time in India have all come back with amazing stories. I think you’re probably right to suggest that not everyone would find it an easy adjustment, but considering the rich culture and amazing history, it would undoubtedly be unforgettable! Your photos are compelling. 🙂
