India Trip (Delhi, Red Fort, Ghandi Smriti & Humayun's Tomb) October 8-11, 2012)
India is an absolute kaleidoscope of sensory impacts, sights, smells, and sounds, which, as the Lonely Planet guide puts it, will “inspire, frustrate, thrill and confound all at once.” They say even veteran travelers see-saw between loving it and loathing it, and that dichotomy maybe best describes our reaction to India. We loved the people, history, culture, diversity, and grand architecture, but at the same time found some things hard to accept, like overpopulation, abject poverty beside wealth, cows in the streets, and incredibly bad traffic. Kim and I did an almost spur of the moment 17 day trip to India October 8-24, 2002, and never for a minute regretted going. Got our tickets on September 15, and off to India less than a month later; we had an appointment with an Indian travel agent, but no reservations except for the first two nights in a Delhi hotel. This first album is of Delhi.
