Looking back in order to look forward

India...  What words come to mind hen you hear it?  India.  A diverse land filled with people, languages, food and cultures.  Different from my own Seattle college ground or little Mossyrock.  Far across the ocean filled with different...EVERYTHING.  I thought that it might be time to show you some videos of my experiences...this past year, I spent 6 months out of country.  Country being the United States...I was in Lebanon (just above Israel in the Near East), India and just a week in the United Kingdom.  These two videos are taken in Mumbai, India and in Goa, India.  Riding the bus, taking the train, feeling awkward trying to document life there, landscapes, people, songs with words unknown to me floating through the air.  I hope you can imagine with me. 

The air smells of spicy curry..hot dry air...sweaty bodies all trying to get to their destinations...dogs lingering around garbage cans...beggars everywhere (just not enough of you to give to everyone)...beautiful colors...sari cloaked women...white shirted men...mendhi covered hands...yellows...pinks...reds...greens...little children...bikes...buses...people...people...who are just like me, and just like you.
