My trip to visit several places highlighted in Paramahansa Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi, including his childhood home.
My early quest for Western snack food. Also: making plans to visit the Dalai Lama and Paramahansa Yogananda's home in Calcutta.
Twenty-minute phone call from here to Georgetown, Tx costs 1,200.00 rupees. The Indian who put the call through for me was dumbfounded. "Twelve...hundred...rupees... Twelve...hundred...rupees..." he said over and over to himself as though he had to pay for it.
Plane, train, bus, rickshaw, boat...and then I had to walk. Nevertheless, I've made it. I knew the ashram would be beautiful, but nothing could've prepared me for seeing this.
