I was only there for about a month due to a military exercise but wow…what a fun, bustling city….loved the way they tried to get us to buy everything and no matter what time of day it was they were giving us the “G.I. special” for being the “first customer” of the day…
Great people, lots to see….interesting fragrance in the air. and I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Korean food!!! Kimchee!!!!!!!!!!! Squid…etc etc etc
It is beautiful and wonderful and an amazing monument to how much he loved his wife. It felt SO surreal the whole time, just being there and realizing I was there and in the moment….was hard to believe I was there at a wonder of the world.
It is totally worth it. I would recommend taking the time and making the effort to “give back” in some way…visit an orphanage, a school, find some way to volunteer and help.
If you can’t do the above, you simply MUST take the time to talk to the people of India….they can be very warm, very loving, and they seem to speak from the heart…but are very honest..sometimes brutally so..lol
Just watch out for hockers…if you are on a big tourist bus or something, hockers are at every stop…you’ll get used to them though and can get some pretty cool souvenirs for loved ones that way.
