Donkey and Jeans – Varanasi, India, November 2003
What can you know - and feel - about a place when you don't meet the people who live in it? We learn through human contact, and the knowledge that we gain is of infinitely greater value than any number of practical tips. It is through human contact that we open our hearts. Enlightenment and love - there are no more compelling reasons to travel, or write about it.
