Now I’m back in New Zealand the India trip seems a bit unreal and I need to write a few things down while its fresh in my mind.
My trip to India consisted of 3 weeks of solid IT training and 3 days for sightseeing and photography. India offers some great financial incentives for anything service based and IT training is no exception.
I decided to spend my 3 days of sightseeing doing three things – One day to see the Taj Mahal (mostly travelling to and from), one day looking at the famous tourist attractions of Delhi and one day wandering local markets, this last day proving to be the most life changing experience.
Travelling to the Taj Mahal was strangely the most unispiring event, don’t get me wrong the place is absolutely beautiful, however even with the day trip spanning from 5am to 11pm – we only had about an hour at the Taj Mahal, arriving at midday the lighting was fairly ordinary and having been cramped up in a van for so many hours I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to get artistic pictures. Sadly I ended up with nothing more than a set of typical tourist photos of the Taj Mahal.
