PAUSE! Before I keep showing you wonderful, amazing Varanasi I want to share you this amazingly cute video I was tagged in. Leah from We Live Upstairs had to answer 5 bloggy questions and it was thoroughly entertaining. Haha, check it out HERE!

Now back to India! If you want to read my post about my time there, click on over here.

  3. Gotta say I love what you're wearing here--looks like you're fitting into the culture quite well, ehe. :) That dress has a stunning print.

    I love that first shot of those round pink buildings. Too neat!

  4. I love that first picture and the one of the man with all the beads is AMAZING!!! The henna design is so pretty too- with your tan and awesome patterned dresses you were practically a local at this point! (Though I think you needed to pile on about 30 more necklaces).

  5. I would get so claustrophobic there! Love that photo of the gentleman in his turban. Gorgeous.

    P.S. That is so funny that your brother cried over the game! Haha I didn't even know there was a game so I guess I'm not TOO much of a freak yet...

  54. You know, I always mean to comment and then I get sucked into reading your archives. (I feel really bad about this because I love your blog and you are just way too funny, I just end up reading and reading.) It has been so exciting to read about you on your adventure, you are so brave just to head off like that and it really looks like you've just been having the most amazing time. Your photos are so exciting to look at, I can get such a feel for the country just by looking at them. Way to go for living out your dream like this!

  58. Looks PHENOMENAL, beautiful henna mehndi!! The foot traffic is insane I remember it took me a few days to acclimatize to it. Varanasi, sadly is an area I didn't get to visit when I was in India. :)

    Cheers and thanks a bunch for visiting! :)
