India is a very different place. I asked my dad yesterday, "Is there anything that is absolutely perfect in this world, because it seems everything has some kind of flaw. Like, even the peacock, which is beautiful everywhere else, has very ugly legs and feet. (Indrajit told us that the feet and legs are all bone so that when they get bitten by snakes, it does not hurt them. There are a lot of peacocks running wild in India.)

In India, I am seeing lots of people who don't have anything, and have to live in tiny, dirty places or beg for money. I have seen kids my age holding babies and asking for money, or shampoo, or lotion. Even though things are very beautiful in some places, in other places they are very sad.

My dad told me that yes, there are two things that Mom and he think are perfect - Lu and me. That was nice to hear. India definitely makes you think about a lot of things.
