Madison's Trip to India

Madison & Kashis
I just got back from a life changing adventure 1/2 way around the world to India. My flight on Etihad Airlines left Chicago at 8:00 PM central time and lasted for 14 hours on a direct flight to Dubai. After a 2 hour layover in Dubai, I was headed over the Indian Ocean to Mumbai for a 5 day diamond buying trip.  I did buy some diamonds; a few have already been sold.

It would be great if most Americans would be able to visit a country like India; we simply do not know how good we have it. I left loving my country and came back loving it even more. India had multiple diverse cultures in plain view.  The people I met were very kind and hospitable to me. A 25 minute taxi cab ride was less than 2 dollars and a 20 oz bottle of Pepsi was less than 35 cents. The roads had everything from buses, cars, horses, cows, carts, pedestrians and up to families of 4 on motorcycles. I saw everything from a Porsche dealership to people living on the street.
