Streets Of India…

Going to the land of A LOT of people, and by a lot I mean over 1.3 billion, you’re going to see some incredible street action.

Since we landed in Delhi at about 5 or so in the morning, our first encounter with traffic was actually a pretty pleasant affair. I had prearranged transportation for us from the airport to take out any struggle of finding a ride once we landed. (If you are planning your first trip to India, or to any unfamiliar country for that matter, I highly suggest you do the same…)

It was an easy 40 minute trip to the hotel and once we unpacked, it was time to explore!

And then we went to town…

What do you do while you have 5 free days in New Delhi?

You go see the sights is what you do!

After a (somewhat good) goodnight’s sleep and just enough breakfast to fill our bellies, we were off.

First stop, the India Gate of course…

After being dropped off by our Uber driver, we had the daunting task to try to cross the street… no small feat to anyone who knows what Delhi traffic is really like.

India’s magic…

Picture in your mind two ladders.

Both the same, about 20 feet high.

Now one has 20 rungs to get up to the top, the other only 2.

The first ladder being very easy to climb all the way to the top, while the second would be impossible.

This is the way I would describe life in India…
