Last week I was in New Delhi for work. It was the third time I had travelled to India. I had been once previously when I was about eleven, and once again in 2000 for my previous company. Both times previously I had been to see the Taj Mahal, which is still the most amazing man-made structure I have ever seen.

I bought some trinkets at various local markets, fending off beggars the entire time. We visited the Red Fort, took a bicycle taxi through some extremely narrow and windy streets, visited a mosque, and generally had a good time exploring New Delhi for a day before getting on a plane home.

My Indian hosts were extremely gracious and they booked a fantastic hotel for me and my colleague Ute. We stayed in the Taj Mahal Hotel, which is part of the “Taj” chain, which is the same chain that Lynn and I stayed in when we went to the Maldives. I can’t speak highly enough about the service at these places, truly what a five star hotel should be.

I was very happy to be able to travel to India, for any purpose, and hope that I will be there again. As far as “exotic” places to see if you are European or American, you really can’t beat India. I recommend it to everyone.
