It was about 9 p.m. when we tried to cross a busy street in Agra. One professor grabbed my left hand as cars weaved between us, while the other tugged my right sleeve, yelling, “Let go of your fears, Anne! Let go of your fears!”
Anyone who has ever tried to cross a busy street in India knows exactly how impossible it is to let go of your fears when you are centimeters away from road kill, but we miraculously made it across.
During the 11-day cultural program trip (it was related to one of my classes) through Rajasthan, India, a group of (mostly) fearless students and professors travelled to New Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Jodhpur, with many stops along the way. I have so much that I can’t wait to share with you all, starting with this quick, sometimes bumpy, video of rickshaw rides and bazaars. Once I overcome my jetlag and exhaustion I’ll be back with more, promise. ♦
