“India for me, it is 2 journeys:
The first one in Calcutta in November 2008: A flight taken the day of the Mumbai terrorist attack and a population in turmoil. Indians definitely do not like the Pakistanis and vice versa! Anyway, once in the city and the Mother Theresa centers visited, many things take a different perspective. It is said that tourists on a spiritual quest are often disappointed (the advertisement “Incredible India” does not show everything!) but back then, it was the opposite… After that, you stop complaining… At least you should.
The second one in Mumbai exactly one year later in November 2009. Taking into account my first experience and thanks to the acute sense of welcome (also writing this blog), Bombay came across as a very pleasant city and I appreciated a certain art of living! I will particularly remember the promenade on the sea side, the Gateway of India, the quality of service of the Taj Mahal rebuilt in less than a year and a movie in theatre in a very Bollywood atmosfear! … Not to be missed!”
