Day 10, India Summer 2012 – Homework

Stories from India Coming Soon


I’ve been home now for 48 hours from India. It almost seems like a dream. Of course, that may be because I feel like I’m walking around in a cloud thanks to the jet-lag. As I come out of that fog and am able to think in more complete and coherent thoughts and sentences, I will begin to journal on here about my time over there.

So stay tuned….
