Ads of Delhi

At the airport heading to Delhi.  And there was a BIG difference between New Delhi and Delhi.  And we stayed in the heart of Delhi by the Red Fort.  It was incredible, but very very very very very very very very very crowded. And very very very very very very very very very very dirty.

Skin lightening was also a HUGE deal.  They all longed to be tall, blonde, and pale.  Basically, me.  I was a celebrity.

There was sooooo much construction going on everywhere.  But some of it looked like it hadn't been touched in years.

All of the stores were closed for the morning of Holi Day.  I can understand why as we were all covered in paint!

The second 300 movie was EVERYWHERE.

While Delhi was crowded, dirty, and had poor air quality, we did appreciate the history of the location with the amazing story of the Red Fort and the Red Mosque.  It was also refreshing to see so many religions along one road working together to feed the hungry.  No one should be going without a meal there because the Sikh temple, the Jain temple, the Hindu temple, and the Muslim Mosque all handed out free meals to anyone that walked by.

The community also supports a lot of homeless people.  The morning we left for Rishikesh, we saw thousands of people sleeping on the sidewalks, in their work vans, and getting ready for their day in the public sinks.  There are just sooooo many people in Delhi that there aren’t even enough beds for people.  It is a different way of life that I’m happy I learned about, but would never ever ever want to experience in any lifetime (although in the Hindu religion, they say I already have or eventually will).
