  1. Success! I woke up and read your “quotes of the day”, and I’m laughing out loud! Humor, lots of chai, and open eyes on a bus in India- that’s where the magic happens!


  2. Good morning Seahorse adventurers. Sounds like all senses are on high alert for incoming signals: touch; taste; smell; sight; hearing. Smart to approach it with “child” like wonder. Imagine years from now being able to initiate someone into such an experience the way Mr. Alter and Mr. Cola are doing for you. Imagine becoming the expert at something and helping others discover it. And yes, the drivers are amazing. You just have to trust them because you will freak out if you doubt them. They are experts in what they do, too.


  3. Lucas you had me dying at:
    ‘Y’all gonna eat that? Cause I am trying to grub and these paranthas are bohot atcha!’

    So much humor in this group. I can’t wait to follow your experiences and laugh as I read your blog posts!
