Great Pics Atchoum! I'm a geography major and the two areas that I concentrate the most on are the M.E and the Indian sub-continent. So much culture and life!

oh and I LOVE google. Espically google image. When I'm finding things to put on my myspace (I'm an addict) I always turn to google.

I had never read your reply ! You're lucky to have courses on the Indian sub-continent. It is basically inexistant at my university, we only get a few hours on that subject inside more general courses such as world geo or politics. And they only mention India and Pakistan. Do you get to learn about the "smaller countries" ?

I've spent four months in Nepal, with locals, so I feel I somewhat understand the culture (I plan on returning for a professional traineeship). Buthan and Bangladesh interest me a lot also.

^^^It makes one want to fly there right away, doesn't it ? Bhutan is on my list. I'm waiting on them to cut the visa and enter fees before though. Or win at the lottery !

I don't have time to read the newspapers, what's going on ? It seems to me every summer we hear terrible news from India and Bangladesh, because of Moonsoon. The best time to go is right after, when nature is luxurious... and dry !

theres a major heatwave going on, im not sure if it has passed yet but last i heard it was bad. would have made travelling around real difficult and my asthma would have probably taken me into hospital with so much heat and dust

Wow, great photos. I'm a bit pissed because I've seen so many insane and beautiful things here in India, but I can't take pictures of it. Photos are forbidden in and around all the cool stuff here in Kolkata, and taking pictures of people is a major no-no. Kinda sucks.

^^^That's terrible ! But why can't you take pictures of people ? Is it just that there are so many tourists, that locals don't "collaborate" anymore ?

Try the countryside, I'm sure you'll have more luck.

Huh??? I have over 1300 photos from India! I found that people were happy to have photos taken of them... but it is true that you can't photograph inside most hindu or buddhist temples. The outsides are fair game though. Just make sure you don't take any pictures of bridges or airports, that's a big no no.
