I’ve always thought that saying that a country is a “country of contrasts” is SO cliché that it’s not worth saying it anymore, but this time I do have to tell this and I believe that anyone that as ever been to India will agree with me:
India is the country of contrasts, by excellence.
I noticed this from the first moment we arrived at India, while crossing New Delhi on a full-speed-nerve-wrecking taxi drive, running in front of a 5 stars hotel just across a bridge with full families sleeping under it.
The country hides so much beauty that you have to keep your eyes wide open or it’ll pass right by without you noticing it. I must admit that it’s hard sometimes and you can get into stressful situations, like the time we almost weren’t able to book our trains or when we had to almost run from a Muslim market in Jaipur, but once you get pass them and give yourself the chance to enjoy whatever experiences you’re having, you’ll notice that you have just loved India as much as I did.
Nonetheless, I have so many stories, good and bad, from my 2 and a half weeks there, that I might share them on this blog very soon. On the mean time, please enjoy this photos.
Disclaimer: This photos were taken while I was backpacking the country back in 2011. Sadly, I’ve lost all my Hi-Res files so I’m making my best here to show them to you with the best quality possible.

All the cool kids want you to take pictures of them
And I really mean it when I say “all the kids”!
