God Bless You All (Day 3)


Religion in India is a way of life, and the people here practice it with an intensity I've never experienced before in America. We went to a Catholic cathedral today and I was almost in tears because everyone there was so focused on their devotion. It was a truly beautiful thing to see. The churches... Continue Reading →

I’m Still Alive


In case y'all were worried, I'm still alive! But I have had an exciting two weeks, so here it goes!1. I hate faxing.
