Terry wrote from India on March 29, 2010:

“It’s been more than 3 decades since I wandered across the subcontinent. I wasn’t sure I was ever going to return, but after a personally fatiguing 2009, I decided a therapeutic, working vacation was in order. India beckoned loud and clear. I chose 3 distinct areas of travel, almost too much to absorb in 1 month, but so far it’s working. First stop was Goa, former Portuguese colony, an international, laid back, beach mecca with a sizable Christian population. Next, the holy city of Varanasi, the real soul of Hindu India, on the banks of the mother Ganges. Uncompromising and unrelenting, where life, death and everything in between is up front and in your face. Final destination coming up, Dharamsala, home to the exiled Dalai Lama and thousands of Tibetan refugees in the foothills (hardly the size of hills) of the Himalayas. A Buddhist enclave. I can’t forget to pay homage to the hyperkinetic transit city of Mumbai (Bombay), 12 million and growing. With 2 days coming in and 2 days going out, it’s a dynamic challenge for even the most intrepid world traveler. The following images were taken created in Goa and Varanasi.”
