Saturday, January 23, 2010
So I'm back in the good old U.S. of A as of today, the 23rd of January 2010. I know there are those of you who will want to hear all about the trip and I'd love to tell each and every one of you guys everything that happened to me and zack and everyone else on the trip (as long as you don't die of boredom lol).
However, the prospect of telling and retelling and telling and retelling the same stories to different people already has me a bit daunted, and even if i did that there's no way I could possibly communicate just how amazing the trip was in 15 minutes of conversation with all of you guys individually. So, while I'll still respond to questions about how the trip was and post a (VERY) small portion of the 1200+ photos that I took over the three weeks to my Facebook, I've decided to supplement whatever I tell you guys in person and the photos I post to Facebook with more here on the blog.
What exactly will this look like? Well i figured that since internet access was pretty spotty during the time that I was in India and I couldn't upload photos from there even if I had wanted to, I would blog when I got back instead of during the trip. So during the days of February 1st through the 22nd or 23rd, I will update this blog a minimum of once daily with photos, journal excerpts, and stories from what happened exactly a month ago. This way it'll have the effect of an unfolding story and all the information will come in (hopefully) manageable chunks!
I don't expect it to be the easiest thing in the world, but I like that it's a goal I've set for myself and an easy way to let multiple people hear about what happened in India. So check back often during February, because I'll be busy relating just what I've been through in the past three weeks :).
As a last thought, I'll put up the very first picture I took in India. This is the view looking from the Red Fort in Delhi across the street to the Jain Temple: (I actually didn't notice the bicycle rickshaw in the foreground until I looked at this picture on my computer monitor instead of the screen on the camera lol)
More to come in the near future!
