Toward the end of our trip, I started asking many of my colleagues to tell me about their favorite moments from India, as well as their "not in Kansas anymore" experiences. As I listened to their answers, I realized that it is really hard to pick just one example for each. To process and distill some of my memories from the trip, I decided to make a gallery of just 25 of the many pictures I took in India. It was really hard to choose just 25...and the exercise made me realize the limitations of photography for representing a place and the range of experiences that one can have there. But in the end I tried to select photographs and write captions that convey some of the (often contradictory) emotions and encounters from the trip.
