incredible india.

- due to the fact that i have been in India for the past 10 days, i have not had time to update my blog, and i apologize. However here are some pictures that will totally justify my not being able to update.
India is no doubt one of the dirtiest places i have ever been to, but at the same time there is purity and cleanliness at the heart of it. I have never felt so at peace and in love in a country before, and i have traveled my fair share. From the bustling cities of Bangalore and Chennai to the beautiful coast of Chennai at fisherman's cove. This trip has been an amazing spiritual and cultural experience, not to mention a fantastic shopping opportunity. Below in the pictures you can see the contrast between western and indian fashion. The indian fashion -and general lifestyle- is filled with colours, precious fabrics, and gorgeous jewelery, something i will be incorporating in my wardrobe from now on, as well.
