#320 incredible india

320/365 incredible india, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

India is fascinating, slightly scary, certainly challenging for me, coming from a quiet, scarcely-populated northern European country. It attacks all your senses at once – the heat, the smells, the never-ending chaos around you, the hot and spicy food, the constantly hooting cars, and screeching noises of traffic, on top of ubiquitous pounding music, and then the colours and glitter that most Scandinavians would probably find too gaudy.

I enjoyed all of the sentiments of culture shock in India, and I am more than willing to go back there for another visit any time. Yet, although I could imagine living in many strange places in the world, I don’t think I would ever want to settle in India for a longer period of time. The Thousand and one Nights fairy tale land on one hand, and utter and unimaginable poverty on the other, is just too much contrast for me.
