I just wanted to start off by saying that India is amazing. I can't believe we've only been here a week, we've seen and done so much! We started off with 3 days in Delhi- cruising in the Gypsy was so much fun (Amit- Christina and I think you should come to Jaipur with us). After that we travelled to Amritsar to see the Golden Temple. The Golden Temple was really beautiful, and the kitchen next door (Langar) provides free meals to anyone who goes there. We helped shell peas and garlic in exchange for the meals. Yesterday we arrived in Dharamsala, it has such a different feel from what we've seen so far. It's very peaceful here and the view is incredible. We can see the Himalayas right outside our bedroom window. Tonight we start our homestays, which I'm really excited for.
Just for the record, squat toilets are way better than the ones back home- they're actually pretty comfortable. I love eating with my hands (I'm never using a fork or knife again).
