i really can't believe all the things we've seen so far. and i still can't believe we are here in india. after over a year of planning, we are here. i wake up in the morning and think, yep, still in india! it's surreal.
things to remember:
i kind of heart tuk tuks
rented a taxi the whole day, the driver was so nice and about half ben's size
people asking for money or selling things. women selling or asking, touch my arm or leg and it makes it that much harder to refuse
i like that indians pay about 5 rupees for tourist attractions when tourists pay about 250 rupees. keep in mind, 250 rupees is still less than $6
at lotus temple more people wanted to take our photo or just take our photo without us "knowing"
we had to take our shoes off at lotus temple, which admittedly freaked us out a little
so many people stare, but i stare too (or more like gawk?)
