As soon as you step off the plane, you know you're in India by it's spicy, dusty pungent odor. Even if I popped open a container while blindfolded, I'd still know it was from India by the lingering scent.

While walking over to Janpath from the hotel, this guy comes straight towards me, definitely hadn't bathed in awhile, carrying a large water bottle in each hand, but with a huge smile and sparkly eyes. He breaks into this manic BeatleJuice dance in front of me, singing hello hello hello hello hello. I think he enjoyed his performance as much as I did. You will enjoy India much more if you're willing to be engaged.

I was at a restaurant and an 8 year old girl came over, properly introduced herself, and wanted to chat, to practice her English. Her English was great, it took her awhile to digest my American accent, you could see the wheels spinning in her head, but her command of the language was impressive, and was a welcome change of pace from the usual kids' HELLO What is your NAME HELLO what is your NAME said over and over, and louder and louder.
