#22 - india - a sensory overloadSaturday, November 23, 2013
Almost seven years ago I spent a few months backpacking in India. At the time it was the most challenging travel I'd ever done.
For starters India is a complete sensory overload that pretty much hits in you the face the moment you step out of the airport. On top of that I had just flown in from Japan after living there for a year - and you would be pushed to find two countries more different. As organised as Japan is - India is as chaotic. And in Japan foreigners are 'gaijin' - where locals will try not to look at you, or more likely look through you if possible. In India the locals are the opposite, and are completely curious.
