Today we went to see a beautiful tomb (Humayun’s Tomb), a garden, Khan market, and a stepwell. Unfortunately, my camera died so I personally did not get pictures of the first step well.
I remember seeing a lot of skinny stray dogs at the tomb grounds. It was really hot weather. The previous day (during the scavenger hunt I think) we went to FabIndia, a traditional Indian clothing store where I purchased the outfit you see in the photo below. I was so happy to finally be dressed more culturally appropriate. You attract enough attention being light-skinned; you don’t need the help of western clothing.
I’m a firm believer of the “when in Rome” concept. “When visiting a foreign land, follow the customs of those who live in it. It can also mean that when you are in an unfamiliar situation, you should follow the lead of those who know the ropes.” It’s just the right and respectful thing to do (within reason of course).
One thought on “India – Tour Day”
This looks like a recent monument, after the Muslims, at the end of the 1300’s under Timur Lenk , conquered the northern part of India.
I would be very interested to visit the really ancient Indian monuments and palaces, those that are 2000 years old or older.
