Goodbye India

September 8, 2013


I write this several months after leaving India. With time I thought there would be clarity. I may be the “Happy Nomad” but I can also be a naive nomad as well. There is no clarity in my mind when it comes to India. I left India with my tail between my legs, trying to […]

Trying Not To Die Before Leaving India

August 27, 2013


I woke up on a Monday morning. Something was wrong. I felt weird. Something didn’t feel right. I dizzily stumbled to the bathroom and had some diarrhea.
