I've Been So American

Finalist 2010 FTF Young Travel Writers Scholarship

I have found nothing quite like the richness of the gravy-air in the land of spices. You could blindfold me and put me on an India-bound airplane without telling me where on earth I was going, and once the aircraft’s door opened and the thick spicy air filled my nostrils, I would be able to tell you instantly, “I am in India”.
