Another surprise that she recounts is the way the people live. “The street vendors, the congestion on the roads, it is a hustle-bustle life, and I think that’s the beauty of it, too. One of the things that struck with me most is that I kind of take for granted what I have back at home. But I also realised that the people here are also happy with their lives. Something I couldn't imagine myself doing but they are happy making the jasmine for your hair and selling those fruits on the street. I think that it is really awesome and great to see that their lives may not be something what Americans might envision their lives to be, but they are happy where they are, and I think it’s really beautiful that they can have a fulfilling life, and be completely happy with something so little, and I think that it’s great.”
Excited to go off and experience more of India, but sad to leave Chennai, says Julia. “It’s become quite a little bit like a home to me, and I hope to one day come back. So I really enjoyed this.”
