India is intense. It is filled with sights, sounds, smells and tastes that are unlike anywhere else in the world (at least the world we have seen so far). Some things we have certainly had enough of but some things we never seem to tire of. Here is a short list:

1. Watching people carry all sorts of things on their head
2. Cows roaming the streets
3. Women in their colorful sarees, punjabis, scarves etc.
4. Monkeys hanging out everywhere
5. Eating the delicious Indian food
6. Watching camels haul carts in Jaipur
7. Drinking sweet Lassis (a yogurt drink)
8. Elephants walking down the street near the Amber Fort
9. Surviving a ride in a tuk-tuk through Indian traffic
10. Seeing women in sarees riding side saddle on motorcycles
11. How many Indians can squeeze into one tuk-tuk
12. Four people on one motorcycle
13. The size of things that can be carried in a rickshaw or a motorcycle
14. Total chaos on the streets where everyone seems to come out alive
15. Enjoying all the colors in the fabric shops
16. Making eye contact with people on the street and getting a smile in return
