Guide to India

I’ve been to India quite a few times and traveled extensively through the country twice now. Once in 2015 and once in 2022. The caveat is that any of my experiences here are situational as I was an Indian person who was traveling in India though I had white people traveling (Amber and Michael for 2015 and my wife Mel in 2022) with me for both times.

Resolutions 2021

Ooooh man. 2020 was a shit show of a year. The pandemic caused huge shock waves throughout all our lives and the entire year has been a clusterfuck. At least the Democrats have the White House so no more Trump news for the next 4 years (at least not just him complaining or something). We had a whole trip to Japan canceled but otherwise I’m lucky that I didn’t lose my job or get sick ...(Read More)
