We visited West India from December 2011 to January 2012 and spent more than 5 weeks there. By this we gained manifold impressions of India and the Indian people. A few days in Delhi (dust, masses of human beings, poverty, perpetual horns and other noises, beggars with cripplednesses, historical buildings), then with driver Anwar to Agra with its famous Taj Mahal and further thru Rajasthan (Amber with Amber Fort and Jaipur with Wind Palace, Pushkar at the lake, stop at the rat temple, Bikaner, Jaisalmer with lake and Fort as well as Camel safari in the desert Thar, Jodhpur with its mighty Fort, Temple of Ranakpur, Udaipur). Afterwards per plane from Udaipur (via Mumbai with slums that are located directly at the safety fence of the airport) to Trivandrum, having some smooth days at the beach of Kovalam, visit of city Cochin and then up to Munnar located at 4920 feet, tea plantation and lovely landscape. Back at the sea level we visited the Backwaters near Alleppey having a house boat. Ensuing by train to Agonda that is in the very south of - finally beach leisure and just a little bit culture. Last but not least per train to Mumbai having our last few days of vacation before the plane brought us back home.
