  1. David and the 1,000 Steps of Chamundi

    06 Feb 2015

    Outside of the temple in the Chamundi hills. Is everything too easy? I mean, I often feel like every step is comfortable and every move is close. In our youth we learned of the struggles humans in the past had to face: harsh living conditions, endless work creating food sources…

  2. The Eternal Light of Fort Kochi

    10 Jan 2015

    The sun just refuses to leave. There are a lot of things I try to do while traveling - but more generally in everyday life. I try to get myself into a headspace that is a mixed cocktail of wonder, curiosity, compassion and action. It’s hard to maintain that train…

  3. The Keralan Backwaters

    03 Jan 2015

    From trains to boats, the journey continues. The last time I really enjoyed myself on a boat I was on the Rio Dulce in Guatemala, sailing with this revolutionary guy named Chris. He left England a long time ago, to live with the indigenous people in the forests of the…

  4. Varkala, Vishnu and Honey Ginger Lemon Tea

    29 Dec 2014

    Pick a side. Verbal learning of scriptures & motivated sacrifices, penance & charity can’t show you reality as it truly is. - The Bhagavad Gita. Sweet, sweet red rocks and cliffs of Varkala. It was nice to get away from massive cities, having spent the first week in Chennai and…

    The best way to get around. The majority of our trip was through the south of the Indian subcontinent. India is monumental - it is enormous and very diverse.

    28 Nov 2014

    The Taj. There are fewer things in the world harder to photograph than the Taj Mahal. Everyone knows what it looks like, and everyone’s seen this photo: The classic Taj shot. It’s ubiquitous, and it pervades culture throughout the world. So on the weary morning ride I was fretting about…

  7. The Humans of New Delhi

    26 Nov 2014

    Legions of people mosey through impossible to find spaces. Beneath the crumbling and rising buildings, and in the alleys and throughways the humans of New Delhi populate the landscape in every dimension. They sit on roofs, they lay on floors, they drive TukTuks and sell spices; they beg for money…

  8. New Delhi … and a little bit of Old Delhi

    24 Nov 2014

    <p>There hovers the sun, a distinctly massive glowing orb in the Delhi sky - diffused by layers of thick grey haze. It hovers silently lighting the city’s cracks and alleys, both shining light and throwing darkness onto the people of New Delhi. I stepped into a world of scintillating smells…
