Experiencing Delhi

India is a huge country with a colourful history and colourful cities. It can be overwhelming and inspirational and challenging. For us India takes time to understand, 2 weeks is not enough and one part of the country doesn’t give you the whole picture. Our short snapshot of the state of Rajasthan began as it ended in Delhi.  We flew into India on 9th March 2019, at the time there was unrest in the areas close to the Pakistan border… View Post
