Photos: Hosur, India – My First True Taste of India

Immediately after landing in Chennai I got onto a bus and headed towards a town called Hosur located a few hours away. It was a relatively smaller city, with about 200,000 people and not very developed. I stayed with a such a sweet and open family. The father had converted to Christianity some time ago and the mother and his children remained Muslims. I had no sense of conflict about that in their home, they all seem to just love and respect each other.

I was in nonstop awe of Hosur. The wonderful tropical landscapes with a hint of fog and dust had me waking up at dawn everyday. The city was mostly an agricultural city. I visited a few farms there that grew flowers to be exported all over the world.

This is the bus I spent most my time riding around in while in Tamil Nadu
