India
   
Tiger Safari
 
 
Unfortunately, India is everything you have seen on TV or read about. There is poverty everywhere, trash, filth, disgusting smells, lack of water, children picking up plastic bottles to recycle, dogs, cattle and pigs roaming everywhere and the bathroom is wherever you choose it to be (I think you get the picture). However, the people are some of the warmest and friendliest we have met in many trips. That universal "smile", head nod or hands together in greeting brought the same in return. The children were funny, excited to visit with us and always wanted their picture taken then shown to them - -"Yea digital cameras". The Majority of our trip took us to Swai Madhopur, the "Tiger City" of eastern Rajasthan. We stayed outside of Ranthambore National Park where we took 7 game drives, 6am-9:30am and 3pm-6:30pm each day. We then traveled by train again to Bharatpur where we visited Agra. This included the Taj Mahal, Red Fort, Baby Taj and the Mughal Mosque. Even with all of the above the wildlife portion of the trip was amazing. A lifetime of memories.
