Dholka, Gujarat 382225, India
While interviewing midwives outside the Dholka village, I saw this bright red sari drying on the rooftop. Hanging from the tree is a stack of earthen pots that are keeping the homemade cream and butter cool in the summer sun. The country might be...

Sola Rd, Ghatlodiya, Ahmedabad, Gujarat 380061, India
The old part of Ahmedabad (east of the Sabarmati river) is teeming with character. A blend of cultures and communities came together for the markets along with stray animals. I particularly enjoyed the vegetable markets on Sunday. Epic...

Drive In Rd, Nilmani Society, Gurukul, Ahmedabad, Gujarat 380052, India
You will find everything here in much lesser price than the big brands though quality maybe compromised. But this is a fun place to visit if you want to see the old structures, small shops, hawkers and street vendors selling myriad things.

A somber afternoon in Quito should definitely go towards the Guyasamin museum. Oswaldo Guyasamin was an Ecuadorian artist of mixed ancestry who created artwork to illustrate human and social inequalities. This poem mounted on the wall in rough...

Banos, Ecuador
For those with a love of extreme adventure, head to Baños in central Ecuador. Here you can ride horses up the side of a volcano, hike in a cloud forest, and plummet down thundering waterfalls. I never quite understood the thrill of adventure...

Cementerio, San Sebastián, Chamula, Chis., Mexico
Imagine your favorite church. Now remove the furniture, and put in a carpet of fragrant soft pine needles. Then light it up with tens of thousands of candles and enormous bouquets of local flowers. Breathtaking. In this indigenous village outside...

Outside of San Cristobal de las Casas is a small village called Chamula. Here, we tasted the freshest tortillas I've ever experienced and got to sample a local liquor called Poush. It's a distilled sugarcane liquor with a powerful jolt! The red...

It can be difficult to orient yourself on the ground in Shanghai. A map will help, but an aerial view of the city will show you just how awesome this city is. You could charter a helicopter, but a far cheaper option is seeing the...

Gandhi Smarak Sangrahalaya, Ashram Rd, Hridaya Kunj, Old Wadaj, Ahmedabad, Gujarat 380027, India
Gujarat isn't on the radar for most travelers who visit India. It's a dry state (alcohol is banned in Gandhi's homestate to honor his lifestyle and respect for a sober humanity) and it's a little bit off the beaten track from the usual Bombay,...
