  5. Beautiful photos.

    The Taj Mahal is a must see. Some people say the city it's in, Agra is "a pit"where "food poisoning [is] guaranteed." Then again, that was one person's experience. There's a blog link in the 1st link listed here that might give you some positive insight:

    I see you got a picture of Holi in the bottom left, there. This 2nd link is one I did about Holi, posted quite a while ago:

    I love finding photos from this holiday! If you go to India, be sure to go during Holi. That's when I'll be going :)

  6. A friend of mine just went to Mumbai. He said it was fine, the city just got a bad rap from the terrorist attacks. And I bet if you went on a tour group, he'd feel better.

  7. I love India! I've been lucky enough to travel extensively in the Middle East and India is one of my favorites. If you do go and want to see the Taj, know that it isn't arranged as tourist-friendly as it could be. It can be difficult to get to (tiny, rocky roads leading up) and the lines to get in a tour can be quite long (as with anything in India, you can always get someone to bypass this for you with some cash). My biggest suggestion would be to research the culture and traditions before you arrive. I spent most of time with a good friend who grew up there and her family. They were able to help me see everything I wanted and also get to know the "real" India many Americans miss out on. Good luck with your plans!
