"Overall my experience was unfortunately negative. However at the same time I recognize that the culture and people have a certain beauty and grace to them. I loved watching the women walk down the street, adorned in their saris, almost enirely unaware of the inner grace that they displayed. The strength and dignity of the human spirit was represented so strongly in such a simple act."

"India was amazing. There really is a little bit of everything there. The food and people are wonderful but be careful where you step because there may be cow dung or something worse. I would want to go back because there is so much to explore and learn about the country. 5 days is hardly enough time."
- Andrea M. Lee, San Francisco, California
