The Horses Died in the Battle (India, 1996)
Armed with a Canon point-and-shoot (my very first camera given to me as a gift), I took this photo in 1996 during my very first backpacking trip. In 6 weeks, I explored India and Nepal by myself which I think was quite bold for a newbie in shoestring budget traveling. That trip, without a doubt, paved the way for me to embrace the passion in exploring different places outside my comfort zone. It made me appreciate the wonders of our world that is teeming with life and beauty. I have become an insatiable wanderer since. 19 years later, here I am on my way to retrace my backpacking route in India and Nepal. On December 7th, with no hotel reservations at all, I am diving right into the heart of one of the world's most densely populated cities: NEW DELHI. The megapolis will serve as my starting point of what will be a 6-week cultural immersion where I hope to meet as many people as I could; hoping that good Samaritans offer acts of kindness and a corner to crash in for the night. This is going to be one awesome heck of a ride. I am packing with me a lot of positive energy and a tremendous amount of open mindedness. Come along with me and let's meet our friends on the other side of the planet.
