Mumbai to Delhi, November 2013
I really enjoyed this tour, the diversity of the landscape and culture was pronominal. It was such a privilege to be able to stand in the middle of Chowpatty beach and see the lights and taste the food and then have the experience of the complete opposite in the very spiritual Omkareshwar, the rural experience of Mandu and the beautiful community of Chanderi, only to finish in Delhi where the pulse of the city is felt through your whole body!
