Wow it feels like forever ago since I typed up a journal entry. Last time I talked about school on here was when I was anticipating what high school would be like with a lot of emojis and how boring sophmore year has been. Now, I'm heading into senior year and I'm thrilled, but when I look back it seems as though nothing has changed. Yeah it's been four years and there's even new shopping complexes being built outside my house, but I feel no different then what I was four years ago. Maybe it's not just me because many other seniors that I've asked all look back and really don't know where their high school career really took them. Until college comes, these are our golden years and I hoped to make the best out of them and this one final year.
Other than realizing how completely stagnant my life is, I just came back from an amazing trip to India. Unlike my previous trips, I have visited the most beautiful places in New Delhi and went up in the mountains to Nainital. New Delhi is by far the cleanest place in India I've ever been to, I'm sure there's more but by far New Delhi has well-maintained and clean roads. The Lotus Temple in the city is a place of prayer and meditation. You can sit silently on wooden benches inside for as long as you like, there's just no pictures allowed even though it's an engineering marvel. The whole lotus is made of marble and is the most tranquil area in New Delhi. I also visited the most spectacular temple in the city, Akshardam. It is the world's largest, carved, Hindu temple in existence. Just standing before it is breathtaking and leaves you speechless. Every little detail is accounted for and well-maintained. The outside of the vast temple is made of red brick and clay, while the inside is all marble and gold and is just as intricately carved as the outside is. This beauty to behold comes at a cost. You can not hold anything in your hands as long as it is a wallet or pocketbook. It is one of the hidden jewels of India and I highly recommend for anyone going to New Delhi to witness it for themselves. Overnight, I took a train ride to a town below Nainital and went by car up the mountain. Nainital borders around a lake and is surrounded by nature. Landslides could happen at any time, but fortunately we didn't witness one. It's colorful, serene, and relatively cooler than most places I've been. Mutton or chicken dumplings called Momos are a delicacy. Outside of Nainital, there are other lakes, but used for swimming, canoeing, and even ziplining (which I did.). Among other places, it's one of the most relaxed yet happening places I've been to. Going to India this time was not as stressful as it was before, which made me even more happier than I thought I would be. If you are planning to visit India, you have to be prepared for the worst. It depends how much you value silence, personal space, cleanliness, and cool air. Most places are air conditioned, but really consider the other three.
So, that's all that has been happening this summer and I'm looking forward to my final year of high school. :)
