Arriving in Delhi for the first time is a culture shock — the whole city leaves the average Westerner wide-eyed and agog. The sheer volume of people, the crumbling infrastructure merging with 21st century ambition, the bamboozling bazaars, and the ancient ruins and sprawling temples peppered throughout the metropolis all combine to create a city without equal (for better and worse). And I loved it there! My only regret was not spending more time.
