DESTINATIONSBy Liz Rañola
India: Love it or hate it. It is the liveliest place I have been to so far. The craziest. 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. Locals, especially men, stared while touts and vendors hawked their stuff and beggars followed at my heels. Being a tourist, I found out, meant being the attraction du jour.

Several months ago, my friend Ned and I began plotting a holiday somewhere in Asia. Sharing a love for travel, both of us have independently explored Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and Myanmar. Then we realized that seeing the Buddhist temples of Borobudur was part of our individual bucket lists and that we both have not seen much of what Indonesia had to offer.
