Sounds like you are having quite the adventure! I’m quite surprised that there are not so many people that speak English… After all India has the most English speakers out of any country in the world so I believe. I guess they are mostly in the bigger cities tho.

What is your favourite spot in India so far? I lived in Dharamsala for a couple of years when I was young but haven’t been back in over 12 years. Its on my list!

Also, how do you feel about moving through places so quickly? I have done a combination of sprints where I do 3-5 nights in a city then move on and stints where I get an apartment and stay for 2-4 weeks in a place. I am consistently enjoying the latter more. I like seeing all the sights, but I build better friendships and have a stronger experience if I stay for longer.
