Incredible India

Patna India...The worst air I've ever seen. Kushinugar tomorrow and Nepal day after...I think my picture count now exceeds 150 along with a couple of short movie clips. Yesterday was the day that has changed my life...I sat at the foot of the Bodhi tree where Siddartha Guatama sat 2600 years ago. I have watched the dead carried by their families through the streets of Varanasi, washed in the waters of the Ganges, and placed on the fires at the burning Ghats. I have seen a 6 year old carrying a 20 kilo load on her head without a whimper...doing a woman's work at 6. My life has been forever changed. I am happy. I will blog about much of what I've experienced in coming weeks/months... I can always hope that some of you will take the chance to someday come here to India...Incredible India. And so it goes I love and miss you all, brinda Namaste
