    You have a very nice descriptiveway of describing the scene Namita. It’s kinda sad about the kids in Hampi though I’m sure it strengthens them for a hard journey into adulthood in those parts!

    I really love the way you wrote this article. And pictures!! I have not been in Asia yet, but thanks for teaching me something new today.
    Honestly, I cannot even imagine how tough life over there is….being raised in Central Europe, I am very much thankful for all the opportunities I have in my life:)

    wow, that would be a completely different experience for me, different from everything I’ve seen! I really hope to visit Asia one day!

    I can’t believe you took those photos with a phone! Really well written blog post, I can totally understand your view on being a local in your own country and being perceived as a not local. Must be quite annoying to be honest?

  6. you capture the pictures as well as the essence of Hampi very well the place has a lot of positive energy…

  7. India is on my list and I am going soon. I can’t wait to experience the perplexity of this country.

    I like the way how you describe an adventure,” It’s not an adventure unless you’re miserable at some point”.
    Thanks for sharing, Safe travel

    I’ve never heard of this place before but it looks amazing! I like that it’s called “hummus trail” 😛

    Having read this post on The Better India, I had to check out your blog. What a collection of interesting and meaningful articles. Enjoyed reading this one – I’m volunteering the Children’s Trust during my next visit 🙂

    Do check out my illustrated travel journal of Hampi:

      Thank you for making my day Seema! So glad you’re volunteering at the Children’s Trust. I had a look at your travel journal and loved it! Watercolor is such a tricky medium but you clearly have a great skill with it. I hope to learn to paint with watercolors someday. Maybe it’s something you can teach the kids in Hampi! Hope you keep painting the places you go to. Such a special way of recording your memories, wayyyy more charming than photos and writing if you ask me 🙂
