Return to Paradise

India has always been a country very fascinating for me. I think everytime I visit I feel like I want to settle there - take up some course in holistic healing and live with the massive population - being a part of it. Belonging. This trip I am on is no different - it's been draining from an academic point of view but I've certainly enjoyed the bright colours and numerous festivals that have been on around this time of the year.

I return to Africa next week and I can't say I'm looking forward to that. The trauma of crime, corruption (not that there isn't any in India - but somehow it's just easier to accept here!) - it all weighs too heavily on my shoulders - even the thought of it makes me cringe.
