india: Wordless Wednesday - Varanasi Cheech & Chong - 11/16/16 01:43 AM
The participation in the ActiveRain 2016 Photography Contest has been awesome. Entries are pouring in and there are so many amazing photos and such wonderful talent on display that our three judges - Kathy Streib, Paul Henderson, and Gayle Rich-Boxman - are going to have a really difficult time picking winners.

There is nothing more terrifying than getting from point A to point B in India.

india: Your Elephant Deserves A Nice Home Too! - 06/30/11 06:48 AM

One of the most fascinating places I ever visited was Hampi in southern India. From the mid-1300's until 1565, Hampi was the capital of the Vijayanagar Empire - a vast and wealthy kingdom spreading across much of Southeast Asia. In 1565, Hampi was sacked by the Deccan Muslim Confederacy and then abandoned.
