3 Days in India – Day III

The world of Bollywood is a fascinating one. I was fortunate enough to take a tour of one of the Bollywood Studios through World of Bollywood Tours. It was a cool tour. I saw live filming for a show. It was a comedy show and even though I couldn’t understand what they were saying I knew it was funny. I saw many permanent sets and took photos on some sets including in jail and as a judge. I watched the crew set up for filming and got a glimpse of a popular Bollywood actress. She was beautiful! And I saw her yelling at a crew member. That lasted forever. I wish I could have understood what she was saying but she was not happy.

From the Bollywood studio I went to lunch with the tour guide. We walked into Persian Darbar. This place is the real deal! The food was excellent. The lamb mutton was unbelievable. I also had a pudding for dessert that was excellent. The restaurant was beautiful and there were plenty of people to serve us. It was a very nice dining experience.

Airport in New Delhi

When time is short, I try to fit in as much as possible. India was no exception. After the 3 hour flight to Mumbai and an all day adventure, I took a 2 hour flight in the wee hours of the morning to New Delhi on my journey to see my 3rd of 7 wonders of the world – The Taj Mahal in Agra India. Not only did I take a 2 hour flight, I then rode for 4 hours to Agra but it was all worth it.

A tour was arranged with Viator and they picked me up from the airport. It was an air conditioned vehicle but it wasn’t very comfortable in the back Read more

3 Days in India – Day I

My journeys are continuing and I’m appreciating each one. I recently spent a whirlwind three days in India. I flew into Mumbai and was overwhelmed with the fast pace of the country and the conditions. Even still, it was a rewarding experience.

As I rode in the taxi and escaped death many times, I gazed out of the window and saw rows of people sleeping on the streets. Many slept in the same spot that they worked. Some even had beds pulled out on the sidewalk for sleeping. The streets were lined with shop after shop of produce stands, hot food stands, clothing DSCN2221stores, barber shops and many other types of shops. Housing conditions are difficult to explain. They remind me of some projects in the US but much worse. There are tall structures coated with dirt and clean clothes hanging out to dry. Garbage lined the streets and the air was thick with pollution. The smell of sewage lasted about 15 minutes on the ride to the hotel. The taxi driver didn’t speak English so it was a challenge to get to the correct place but I was happy when I finally arrived to the hotel.
