Try India.

Before I went there, I thought "people say it's a life changing experience, however I'm an experienced world traveler so I doubt it".

Well, I doubted no more India was a life changing experience.

Every day was like a magic carpet ride. So many sights, experiences, smells.

I was there for two week and...

- A man beat back a leper to keep him away from me (the leper wanted to carry my luggage).

- A gypsy gave me a private performance of his somewhat tamed bear - while hundreds watched.

- The gypsy gave me a gift that magically stopped me from being harmed later in my trip.

- I had the poorest of children make change for me because they felt I was giving them too much alms.

- I met a man life stricken by polio who lives lying on a mat in a house made of palm fronds. I gave his family $5

- I tasted tender green coconut juice.

- I was serenaded by moonlight in dugout canoes (no tourists within 50 miles of this place).

- I sang and banged pots with a family of vegetarians who had never eaten meat (probably for at least 10 generations or more).

I could go on and on, but it would truly be a total experience you would never
forget for the rest of your life!
