    What South Asian Cities Seem to be Missing
    Jennifer Baljko, Barcelona

    I slump into the sofa of the hotel lobby. It’s been another exhausting day walking through India. We squeezed ourselves through narrow alleyways where bicycle carts, cows, and mopeds also wrestle to move a few feet forward. We sidestepped the...
