Well...the time is here to say goodbye to india....(I'm at the airport)

I've spent the last few days in Mumbai, staying with a girl I met at Vipassana (on day 10 when we could talk)...and now I'm definitely seeing another side of india...

This family is incredible...they are self made millionairres, hard working, yet maintaining a very balanced life in regards to family/friends/etc and they are the most modest, giving and kind people you could imagine. The 2 men of the house believe that nobody should live extravagantly because if you do - you become attached to things in life that are not important, so one should always live as though if you lost everything you have tomorrow, you would still be as happy as you are today... It is incredibly inspiring to watch them interact - SO giving to all the people around them (always paying for the entire group whenever eating or drinking out) yet owning very little in terms of possessions, and residing in a very modest home. Anyway, they have been incredible hosts for the last few days, and I feel so lucky to have met them...

3 months in india has definitely opened my mind and my heart and I hope that you maybe one day will come explore here...there is so much to see, do, and experience...I feel like I have only just scratched the surface.

I havent posted any pics in a while, so attached to this entry are some random ones from the last few months...

next stop...london. :)
