"Really try to enjoy walking..." India Favorite Tip by richiecdisc
India General: 413 reviews and 330 photos
Favorite thing: Really try to enjoy walking around on the street. At first you are likely to be overwelmed by all that is going on around you. People will beg, plead, and vie for your money. You are a bit of a marked man. You are a westerner and in their eyes you are rich. I got used to the begging though the level of poverty is beyond anything I had seen before, but what I found annoying was they just couldn't seem to understand that you wanted to walk. The taxi drivers and worse, the auto- and cycle-rickshaw drivers just would not let you walk anywhere without hounding you for blocks. But when you do shed them and you get through all the hordes, the street scene is as colorful and varied as any in the world.
Fondest memory: The smell of the food.
