Cows in the middle of the road, the traffic, the honking, dust, garbage, vendors, Hinduism, motors, tuktuks, touts, crowded trains—the moment I started walking the streets of Delhi, this mix dazzled me at every turn. Walking was like negotiating a maze as I sidestepped cow pies without getting hit by a motorcycle or tuktuk or bumping into people.

Bali has often been described as Paradise Found, and when we first visited in 1997, the island was all that. One of the stickiest images I took from that time was the sight of prepubescent boys and girls bathing naked in the river, unmindful of the gawking tourists in the passing buses overhead. The laughter was pure mirth while the frolicking recalled the rough and tumble childhood games of a more innocent era.
