Traveling through India is everything everyone tells you it will be. Beautiful, shocking, inspiring, exotic, humbling. Of the most memorable thing was just how happy & accepting the people are, regardless of their situation. The universal acceptance of any given situation seems to allow everyone to get by in a way that we may not experience in the US. Even the poor help out those who are less fortunate than them - everyone contributes to the communal effort. The man in the photo was sitting quietly at the end of a long hallway at the temple at Fatehpur Sikri-- an abandoned city. It was serene to see him sitting all alone, hand extended but no one around. He was so peaceful that I began to think he may not be asking for anything at all, but instead, actually offering something.
