My daughter was living in India for a year working as a volunteer English teacher. I went out to spend three weeks with her and we travelled for the whole time having a memorable adventure
Lessons & Tips:
If you have white skin, or unusual coloured hair be very prepared to be constantly stared at especially if you are visiting areas that are off the tourist track. You will also be photographed a LOT, people just position their family around you as you stand looking at something. The people are generally lovely but if you are single females be prepared that you will experience some who do not see women as equals. You will experience the most extremes of wealth and poverty but you will never experience such an amazing country as India.
