Kelly Cash's India/Nepal 03/2008 Photograph Library

-----===== Under Construction =====-----

(It's mostly done, but I'm still adding detailed stories/comments to individual pictures.)

There are a number of photo directories here, and they've been thumbnailed for easy location and viewing.

How do I describe the subcontinent? I've been told it's the biggest culture shock a westerner can have. I'm inclined to believe that. All at the same time, I found India to be amazing, frustrating, fascinating, filthy, magnificent, pitiful, crowded & bustling, serene in places, beautiful, squalid, high-tech and primitive. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to insult or make disparaging comments about India or Nepal. But WOW, is that place different! I've been to Asia, Europe, Scandinavia, North and South America, and never have I been anywhere like this!

I've been wanting to see India for years, and I'm glad I finally got to see it. It's funny- I've had many different kinds of vacations:

  • Relaxing vacations where I sip drinks on the beach in the tropics
  • Challenging vacations where I ski, ride or hike non-stop for days on end
  • Environmental vacations where I spend the entire time enjoying earth's beauty
This was different- It was like being inside a National Geographic documentary. True, I saw many beautiful sights, but it was more like a total immersion class in a wildly different culture. Did I have a good time? Well, I took almost 3,000 pictures- That should be a clue! (no, I won't post them all here.) But yes, I did have a good time. I truly enjoyed visiting India, but I absolutely loved Nepal. While Kathmandu has as much air and water pollution as India, it seems somehow more vibrant, colorful, happy, upbeat, lively.

There are comments under most of the photos I'm posting. When viewing them, there may be links to longer comments, stories, and details of my trip. Click on "Comment" to open a window with the comments/stories for that photo.
