Dharamsala was nothing like I expected. I didn’t expect a quiet town full of Tibetan monks wandering down the streets and chanting through lush gardens, but I did expect a charming hill town with a meditative energy to it that would make me love nature even more. What I got instead was a bustling hill town with kiosks targeting tourists at every corner and drivers that – judging by the honking and near misses of people, cars, and cows – learned to drive in Delhi. I didn’t find the relaxing village I had hoped for, but my hotel room did serve as a small oasis with unbelievable views that I could’ve easily stared at for a few more days.
