This is awesome. If you are prepared to come on this adventure to Southeast India with me, I shall ardently try to capture every sight, smell, taste and new idea that I encounter. For the next 6 months I will be staying at an ashram in Pondicherri, India called the Sri Aurobindo Society. I will be co-coordinating a service learning trip for 15 University of Oregon students in December. I can’t wait to see what joys and challenges lie ahead.
I received my Indian visa in the mail the day of my graduation, a sunny June afternoon. My grandma said she thought I was happier to see the visa than my diploma, and I think she was right.
I was still pretty glad to graduate though.
