India:A Lot of Sandals

Of the two to three hundred people that took off their footware before entering the church, I was the ONLY one wearing shoes and socks. (I actually checked). It seemed that no one in the entire country wore shoes during the rainy season. It took me forever to untie or tie as I entered or exited buildings during the day. Everyone else just slipped in and out and were on their way. I had made a big mistake packing for this trip.
