Day 71: Watching history being made
Although I am a day ahead of most of my friends in the US and the UK, I was lucky enough to wake up in time to watch the election results. Needless to say, I am overjoyed and thrilled. Watching my very own hometown on the TV was moving...I think the most emotional part for me was seeing everyday Chicagoans with tears running down their faces. It may sound twee or sappy, but I am so very proud to be an American. And although I am travelling from Bombay to Pune today via train on a very picturesque trip, there's nothing I'd rather post today than the photo above.
