The first day in India, Delhi had an Air Purity index number that was off the charts.
Second day, the government decided to demonetize the two largest bills in the country.
On the third, Donald Trump was elected president.
Besides the above mentioned hiccups, everything seemed to work out.
The pieces of India that I saw ranged from the views on the cusp of the Himalayas in Mcloedganj, the beautiful bridges of Udaipur, the colorful alleyways of Jodhpur, the splendor of the Amer Fort outside of Jaipur, the majesty of the Taj at Agra, and the history and urban center of Delhi. From the mountains to the desert, northern India had a range of beauty that I had yet to encounter in a single country besides the USA.
I hadn't intend to shoot a video on this trip as I thought 22,316 Miles would be my last travel based visuals. After grabbing a few clips early on and after having Die!Die!Die!'s Harmony stuck in my head, I decided to see what I could put together. While a lot of shots didn't turn out great due to the strong light and smog, I finally managed to bring everything together in this video.
