Hey All!! Sorry its taken us a while to get started, but the internet connection over here isnt exactly designed for uploading of photos and always crashed, but theres a few up there now!!!
Where to start......Well we turned up in Delhi and its true what everyone says, its very overwhelming to say the least, and everybody stares at me especially as im a girl and it makes you feel pretty uncomfortable to start although after a while im now starting to become oblivious!! We arrived at the hostel and cant complain for 3pounds a night!! Our first trip into delhi was a bit eventful and we just got hassled from the moment we stepped out the door with everyone trying to fleece us, managed to find a government approved tourist office though and have sorted out a tour through them as the public transport didnt always run to where we wanted to go
Delhi after the initial shock was very interesting especially New Delhi, although still a shock when kids run through the crazy traffic to try and beg at the car windows. We saw the sites such as India Gate, Indhira Ghandis home etc and then travelled to Agra. I can only agree with everyone that has seen but the Taj Mah Hal is definatley the most impressive thing iv seen, and as we watched the sun and the mist rise over it, it was truly amazing! After that we travelled to Ranthambore and went on a tiger safari where we were lucky enough to see a tiger in the wild, and we were one of very few who saw it too, including Mick Jagger who was apparently there although we didn't see him :( Weve been to numerous temples and tomba all of which are very impressive but I have to say I can remeber the name of half of them! We are now in Bikaner where we went to see the Karni Mata temple today otherwise known as the temple of the rats!! And yes there is a lot of them, and for all Hindu temples you have to take off your shoes, not the nicest experience I have to admit, although Ad was far more scared than me!!
Were off to Jaisalmer in a couple of days to go on a camel safari and sleep under the stars, which im looking forward to! Hope everyone is well at home, miss you all lots and will update more when we can!!
Lots of love Kat and Adam x
