India

I have just come back from two wonderful weeks in India. Being there is such an overwhelming experience it took me a few days to aclimatise but once I did I loved it, I mean I got to have curry all the time, even for breakfast. My tour involved visiting a whole heap of temples and a few mosques. I even got to see people washing in the ganges and being cremated by the ganges. One evening we went to observe a fire ceremony to the river which involved lots of candles being waved around over peoples heads and looked stunning. I was very struck with the beauty of peoples faith there. They firmly held their beliefs and went to considerable lengths to adhere to their Gods. I am not sure where I stand on the whole debate of all roads lead to God versus Jesus saying I am the way the truth and the life but I do know that we have a lot to learn from each other.
