The city of 1000 temples crowded and busy, with all indian features and moods. Shiva temples, Vishnu temples where crowds of barefut people come to ask gods something or to thank them. It is like a fair deal. I give you my gifts and want something in exchange. In christian churches you come to be impressed, to feel guilty and insignificant and to beg to forgive you for the sins you were created for. Yes you were created as god but lost the divinity. You are a sinner even if you live according to all the rules. Here it feels different

It is always interesting to observe your feelings when you immerse into a foreign system of stereotypes. When your system of right and wrong brakes while meeting the one of other people. And both systems loose their strength. Both seem artificial.
