“For each terrible horrible encounter in India, an equally opposite encounter will follow.” I am certain that this should be a law of physics in India. This is what drives the cliché Indian/westerner debacle… the love hate relationship with India.
When people ask me what to do in Charlotte, I never even know where to begin! I lived in Charlotte for only a year but it will always hold a place in my heart. It was my first time living alone.
