India: I really didn’t know what to expect.

Text and Photos by Enrico Costantini

“…Then only in the empty spaces,
Death, walking very silently,
Shall fear the glory of our faces
Through all the dark infinity.

So, clothed about with perfect love,
The eternal end shall find us one,
Alone above the Night, above
The dust of the dead gods, alone.”

When I packed my backpack for a nearly 100 days road trip from India to China I really didn’t know what to expect.
As I got to India it seemed like a parallel world to me, so different from all that I had ever seen before.
Very crowded and noisy streets, dust and a bit of everything mixed together.

At the beginning there are some things you love and some you hate, but that’s also why it impressed me so much.
I think I started loving India the moment I left it.

I loved the variety of landscapes and views, from one of the most iconic symbols of India as much as known as a symbol of eternal Love, the Tah Mahal, neglected waterfalls scattered with animals bones between canyons and forests, to 1500 years old Havelis in one of the biggest Fort in the middle of the Thar desert.
