A place where miracles happen

11 days ago I returned home from a 3 and a half month trip to South Asia that took me to three different countries–Nepal, India, and Sri Lanka.

In spite of all the trouble that this region of the world faces–poverty, hunger, armed conflict–I say that miracles happen here because it changed my outlook on life and introduced me to the most amazing experience I have ever had. I’ll let the photos explain.
