I had an amazing time white water rafting on the Ganga. I spent a day in Rishikesh, sat through a beautiful evening puja at Parmarth Niketan, bought a Gabriel Garcia Marquez book and a healing crystal necklace. Rishikesh is a really dynamic and unique city; when I come back to India I want to spend more time there. I didn’t have my camera on this last trip so I have no pictures, but I’ll share some that my classmates took in Rishikesh.
I can see the last three and a half months in the length of my hair, in the callouss on my heels…but it doesn’t feel real that my time here is over. I think that the impact India has had on me won’t be evident until I’m back in America getting situated into University life.
My main priorities right now are finishing my final essays and figuring out how to stuff all of my souvenirs in my suitcase without exceeding the weight limit.
