Well that's what my sister said. And my parent's were paying so why not! In exchange, I removed my eyebrow piercing, so everyone's happy now.

India was WOW WOW WOW. We went to discover out roots and learnt alot.

Like Christianity started in India in 52AD. My dad's Vettuparampil house in Edathua is 350+ years old and the land has been in their possession for over 500 years. Syrian Christians have a Syrian ethic link, not just cultural.

I saw elephants, bisons, monkeys in the wild (the safari was 777km square - larger than whole of Singapore!).

And I ate lots of curry. The food was so good, I don't think I can ever eat an ordinary curry again.

In all, I was completely blown away. It was one week of sensory overload. Words cannot describe India.
