The trek in the Himalayas has opened my eyes to the northern cultures of India. I’ve realized how little I know about them. There are so many new things to see and try.

Flowers are pretty things. Is drinking flower tea making you feel pretty as well? Yes, it does for me. I love herbal tea especially those which made from colorful blossoms from the wild.
