Pictures of India Part One - Intermission over

I've been back from India for a while now, but haven't managed to get back into the swing of blogging until now. I suppose that seeing all the things I saw while I was over there put a lot of things into perspective for me, and blogging just didn't feel that important to me anymore- I felt that being in India changed me, and I no longer found it as interesting to read about "Look what I just bought!" or "look what was given to me for free!"
I kind of felt that the whole blogging environment was a bit claustrophobic for me for a while, so I decided to take a step back for a little bit. I didn't think it was right for me to write about day to day things like normal, because it just felt a little narcissistic and spoilt to have a website where I can write about myself and all the privileges I have, just for other people to read about.
When I first got back from India I felt bad for having everything that I have, while so many people in the world have nothing- but I do understand that everything is relative and now I hope that I can use the privileges and things I have to do better and help others.

India itself was amazing. A country so vibrant, full of colour and smells and sounds that take your breath away. I loved India so much and I will definitely be going back at some point. The driving took some getting used to- Indian roads are definitely not advisable for nervous passengers!!

I thought I'd kick off my post about my trip to India with some of my favourite pictures of the buildings and sights that I saw, and in my next post I'll concentrate on the work that we did out there with The Leprosy Mission.

An alleyway that I accidentally shot whilst just taking pictures out from the window of a moving car. I love that I managed to catch the man walking with his buckets.
