It brightened a cold and dreary day to find out that three of my Instgram photos from India were selected for this bright and beautiful Matador Network photo gallery: 29 Instagrams that show how vibrant the world really is. (It’s actually very hard NOT to take colorful photos in India, so I had a significant advantage.)

Now that I’m back in the land of the snow and ice, it’s hard to believe that just a week ago I was strolling along Marina Beach in Chennai, one of the longest beaches in the world. I also made a stop at San Thome Basilica, which is built over the tomb of disciple St. Thomas. St. Thomas spent 20 years in India, from 52 to 72 AD.
I had the pleasure of spending five relaxing days in Sri Lanka, recovering from the Rickshaw Challenge and securing another 30-day visa for India. In Galle, I stayed in a fascinating 260-year old home, Atapattu Walawwa, which was built in complete harmony with the natural environment and incorporates Buddhist principles in its design.
