We spent one of the first nights in India at a grandiose hotel aptly named the “Chumba Palace”. While it overlooked the beautiful lakes of Udaipur, it was a sight to behold in its own right. The open-air upper terrace was lit in an exquisite fashion that was only enhanced by the reflection off of the pool. In contrast to the dirty streets and slums found in the adjacent neighborhoods, it was a representation of the power and elegance to be found in India – a country said to have the richest of the rich and the poorest of the poor. While of a more upscale nature than most sights, it was just a taste of the many scenes of beauty to be witnessed during our time in India.
The famous Musée d’Orsay clock has always been one of my favorite features of Paris. In this photo, my silhouette becomes an artistic addition to the image of the clock itself, much like I was becoming a cultural addition to my Parisian host family. My sister took this photo when she visited me in May. When I mentioned that my sister might be visiting, my host mom immediately offered to let her stay in the spare bedroom of the apartment. I then felt even more at home with Madame Brizard and I even got the chance to visit her again when I went back to Paris this winter break to do research for my thesis. I was so grateful to her and so humbled when she told me that hosting me was a wonderful experience for her as well. While my sister does not like being in pictures (she much prefers to take them), I love looking at this photo as a great memory of our time together in Paris, which also reminds me of Madame Brizard and how great it was living with her for six months.
