Sensual Asia

The first thing I noticed was the smell. Getting off the plane in Delhi to transfer for Kathmandu, I immediately knew I had arrived in Asia when I could sense the faintest smell of spice in the air. And from that point on it became stronger and stronger. The smell of curry and incense at every corner of Kathmandu. Things are general intense in Nepal and many parts of India: the smells, the colours, the noise, the lack of personal space: every sense is engaged in some way, pleasant or unpleasant! Asia is sensual in many ways. I can see how people can feel intensely homesick after leaving here!
