India

"The land of romantics dreams, unbelievable wealth and awful destitution, luxury and poverty, palaces and huts, hunger and plague, spirits and giants, Aladdin's lamps, tigers and elephants, cobras and jungles; the country of hundreds of peoples and languages, thousands of religions and two millions of gods.."

Mark Twain.

 At the time of the Moghuls, Agra was the capital of India and much of its superb architecture, which includes the Taj Mahal and the enormous Agra Fort, dates from this era. Apart from its smattering of imposing Moghul monuments, Agra is like many other northern Indian cities, with a large cantonment, bustling bazaars, predatory rickshaw riders and persistent guides in temper-fraying profusion.

The Kullu valley is one of the most wonderful places in India. The Gimalai valley is surrounded by the mountains of about 6000 height, the strikingly beautiful wild nature with the minimum of civilization. Here and there on the mountains slopes are picturesque villages, the habitants of which are peasants that have kept their unique culture traditions and customs for hundreds of years.
