"Facade" India Favorite Tip by Sharrie

Favorite thing: We visited 3 main cities (the trinity ;-)) while on our 1-week trip to India. Delhi, Jaipur & Agra.

Personally I like Jaipur best.
It's a city of character & diversity.
Chaotic but with a tint of charm.
& it's the city where I don't expect much but found lots.

In India, looks matter greatly.
As with many Asian countries I am sure.
Yet, here I found something which looks so wonderful graceful (notwithstanding it's a little rundown) yet not functional.
Is that what India is coming to?
We constantly asked ourselves this question.

Of the many forts we visited, we could easily tell that it was once something great.
Yet they bore the look of poverty.
Such a waste... a civilization so great yet not preserved!
