Delhi, India Is Another Universe of Crazy

I'll be honest with you… while I was in India, I hated being there;

Every city was filled with trash absolutely everywhere. The noise level was unreal with every car and scooter honking their horns with no remorse.

I had allergies to all of the food because of my lactose intolerance, and the level of spiciness in everything,

Everything was unorganized and late, especially with buses and trains.

Every taxi driver tries to charge you more because of your foreigner status.

And the unhygienic habits (wiping your ass with your left hand, and shaking with your right is a main custom).

Yet, I didn't mind the extreme heat, or the absolutely decrepit beggars everywhere, or the extremely ghetto streets.

India is the wild west with a lot of ‘character and personality'… something you will not see anywhere else in the world.

P.S. There are 145 Photos to choose from in this album, so I will try to categorize them as best as possible!

Where is Delhi, India?

The People of Old Delhi, India…

Delhi, India is actually 2 different cities; Old Delhi, and New Delhi.

New Delhi is the gentrified areas full of malls, new apartment blocks, highways, and pretty much the same thing you see in every corner of the world right now.

Old Delhi is where the wild west is, and you can tell by the people there.

The Streets of Delhi, India

This is as ghetto as you can get. Old, and poorly maintained, but there is ‘character and personality' as a British tourist said to me.

I walked around with my camera throughout all of India, and not once felt like there might be a threat. But still be vigilant – anything can happen.

India into the new age

Most of Indias changes occurred once the British empire brought along their European style of architecture, education, and market capitalism. As such, this is reflected in many of the newer buildings in Delhi, India
