I've recently returned from Rajasthan after being on a training trip on one of Explore's "In Style" trips:
Rajasthan - Land of the Maharajahs
. To say it was an amazing experience is not to do it justice at all, and I am still coming to terms with how different my universe seems having been to the World's largest democracy. It was timely too, given the celebrations this year marking India's 60th year in 2007.
Whilst there, my tour leader was Ramesh Koul, who looked after us very well. He kindly agreed to be interviewed in the gardens of Udaipur's City Palace, whilst drinking some Masala Chai (that's spicy ginger tea). I'm afraid there's a bit of background noise but then as Ramesh commented several times, "if it isn't noisy, it isn't the real India."
I'll have some more posts and podcasts on India this week, so if you have anything to tell us about India just leave a comment!
