The Joy of South India Tour
I spent the first 8 years of my visits to India in the south volunteering at Blue Mango Trust and exploring the cities, villages and areas in the south. Like the landscapes of my childhood, the groves of coconut palms spring up amid bright green squares of rice paddies with surrounding mountains and warm waters lap white sand beaches. I am in love with the south and want to share it with you.
