Spending four+ months in any one country definitely wasn't in the original plan - nothing at this point was in the original plan - but I wouldn't choose to spend that time anywhere else.
And on that note and perhaps more significantly, bye for now, Southeast Asia!
I have a million things to say about the four months that turned into nine, and so much to be thankful for, but it's 5 AM and I'm not articulate enough at this hour to even attempt it.
Suffice it to say, I'll be back.
Now - India! And all the veg food imaginable.
