Writing about vacations I want to take while I’m already on vacation seems like a strange thing to do, but that’s how the dates worked out. So here I am, talking about India while I’m in the North Woods, just about polar opposites.
India has had a special place in my heart as far as dream vacations go since I was a sophomore in college. I took a world religions class, and we spent at least a month learning about the Hindu religion. It fascinated me, and it made me want to experience it for myself.
The fascination continued when I saw the movie Slumdog Millionaire. When primitive meets vast wealth, there’s always an interesting story.
And it continued when a family friend spent a month in India being trained by a yogi. She had only good things to stay, she lived with a host family, and it sounded like a truly life-changing experience.
