Yes, you read that correctly - there is a place called Bhubaneswar located on the North-East coast of India, that bills itself as the "Miami Beach of India." If that hadn't peaked my interest enough already, there was also the promise of some surfable waves. Unsurprisingly, neither of those statements was close to the truth. The main reason these images are now getting their own post is because they simply look so out of place next to any of the other images from this trip. There is a surrealism to this place that still fascinates me now.
No trip to India would be complete without exploring its deeply fascinating relationship with religion and spirituality. Although the Catholic influence on my life has faded far into the background, I find the further away from the Vatican I get, the more my interest in religion grows again. Here are some of my favourite space across South India.
This is the only photo from the entire trip that I cannot place with 100% certainty anymore, but I want to say it was part of a temple in Pondicherry.
