On the India-Pakistan Border

On the India-Pakistan Border

Relations between India and Pakistan have been tense for a long time. Near Amritsar is the Wagah boarder crossing, what was for decades the only land crossing open between the two nations.

With coordinated dance fighting, of course.

Six Months on the Road

Six Months on the Road

Kelsi and I set out from Boston six months ago and this seems like an opportune time to reflect on the trip thus far. Although on the blog we’re still posting stories from India, I write this from a café/bar on an island in Vietnam. Vietnam is our last stop in Asia and we soon be flying back over the Pacific. We have lot more stories to share from India and the rest of Asia, so expect more of those to come after this post, but for now I take a moment to look back.
