India - beautiful people, beautiful nature

and beautiful buildings.

First time in India and Delhi - 2001

We where greeted at the airport in New Delhi by, something that felt like, 200000 enthusiastic Indians who all wanted to sell us something, or drive us to a hotel where they get commissions. We found a "pre-paid taxi booth," but the incredibly friendly taxi driver tried of course to lure us to another hotel. But we used the harsh voice and told him to drive to our guest house, so we ended up at the right place in the end anyway.

India is truly a different world - the smells, the sounds and the whole atmosphere was quite different than anything we had experienced before ... And everyone - and I mean everyone - "tests" the horn on the car / autorickshaw / moped for each 100 meter.

Still coming back...

There is so much to see, so many interessting and special places.

We got hooked and always end up saying "Maybe next time?..."
And starts thinking about our next trip to India on the way home.
