Beautiful beyond words.

wow. i’ve never been, but this really captures the sensory overload i’ve heard india is in general. beautifully filmed.

I’ve never been to India (though I hope to visit at some length eventually), but I suspect it’s like arriving in New York or Tokyo or Hong Kong, which is to say more culture shock than sensory overload.

definitely both. i’ve only been to NYC twice, but both times i got a bit overwhelmed after awhile by the constant barrage on all my senses as well as the constant shoulder-to-shoulder of humanity. this video reminds me of that.

All I mean is that I don’t think it overloads most locals’ senses. When you live within a sensory rich environment, you learn to edit out the constant barrage so it becomes mundane.
