Wow, I’m Bad at Taking Pictures ….

Okay, I promised you some new posts and pictures from Lisa’s and Daniel’s visit the last time, and now that time has finally come! Unfortunately, I’ve once again realized that am not really hipster-material, because I’m really just very bad at taking pictures. I generally tend to forget to pictures completely, and if I do take some, they never turn out that great. So obviously, you won’t find a single picture of Elephanta Island in here, because why would I take a picture of a bunch of monkeys running around some thousand year old cave temples off the coast of Mumbai, if I can instead NOT take pictures? I guess you can google Elephanta Island and then you’ll have to believe me that I was there. I did manage at least a few nice pix from that trip, so there you go! Apart from going to Mumbai and Kerala it was also really nice to meet my friends from Germany again. When you live here as an intern, it’s very easy to get lost in your own bubble and you can easily lose your sense of “reality” or groundedness (that is not a real word I guess), so it was nice to have some contact to the “real world” again. Plus, it’s always interesting to see Germans during their first time in India! So many things have just become normal after almost 9 months that you almost forget how “weird” or foreign they actually are.

So here are the pictures! Enjoy 🙂
