On the occasion of the upcoming Mother's day, here is my wonderful mom and me. Can you imagine what it’s like to live all your life in a small quiet town and then all of a sudden make a trip to a far away land, thousands miles from home? Well, my mom certainly can. She never revealed any particular desire to travel, but mother’s love works miracles, and soon after I moved to India she scheduled her first trip to visit me. To say I was worried is to say nothing – the main concern was her limited (or rather non-existent) English. How would she ask for directions? What if custom officers ask her something and she won’t be able to reply? I wrote a list of phrases with Russian translation, then asked her to print them out and just point the right one to people in case of some difficulties. So she did in Mumbai airport, where a helper swindled her by taking $10 for a short phone call. But well, she arrived safely and that’s the most important. Like for everyone else, a visit to India was a big eye opener for her, but to be honest I expected a bigger impact of the cultural shock on my mom. But no, it seems living in a small world of a provincial town doesn’t prevent one from being open minded enough to accept the different ways of other cultures. #india #travel #mumbai #travelinindia #incredibleindia #trip #instatravel #travelgram #traveling #traveler #travelblog #travelblogger
