We landed in Bombay. It was our first destination of a three-month trip that would take us to India, Burma, Thailand and Vietnam. I have never had an especially mystical or spiritual nature but this trip changed us. India is another planet. You have the feeling of having landed in another place, a place where your people live from other premises, with other mental schemes, you can feel that our worlds have developed in parallel, alien to each other, for a long time. It is a place of opposites, of extremes.
