I am back from India three weeks ago, but I am ashamed to say, but I didn’t had time to update my blog. It was much I had to organize and sort, and to take care of when I was back in Sweden. It was an exciting trip, I met interesting people, interesting artists, experienced the Indian climate on several different levels. I feel like “home” in India, land of contrasts. It is also a good way to get the distance and getting a big dose of humility and gratitude that you take home. .
It was not so many days that I was in India. A week in Kolkata and where can I really, really recommend the Hotel Casa Fortuna. It was a very clean and nice hotel with incredibly good service and friendly staff. The hotel also had a vegetarian restaurant with very good food, and it was cheap (in comparison with the Swedish money, very cheap)
I will update with photos from my stay a little at time. I took several pictures from the show (although the images were miserable because I dropped my old camera on the floor, but I was fortunate that I took with me the new camera, an Olympus STYLUS SP 100EE. A little and handy camera , good for streets photo. Gratitude, I am so grateful That, in order to make this trip, I managed to work so many nights that this trip became possible. May I ever forget to be grateful for the goods things that’s happen in life.
Since we were busy with the show and the time was limited, we had not much time to explore the city. But we had time for some visits and I am most happy to visit the Mother Teresa House
I felt such an inner gratitude and became emotional when I stepped into her house that I got tears in my eyes. She, who has always been a model for me, and there I was in her house. There was a photographing ban so I have only these two images.
We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.
