Un viaggio in India strepitoso! Io e un'amica siamo partite nel mese di marzo 2016 e abbiamo partecipato all'Holi Festival, la festa dei colori e dell'amore che è famosa in tutto il mondoRead more
E' stata un'esperienza davvero unica, che ci ha permesso di entrare davvero in contatto con la cultura locale, partecipando alle celebrazioni e alle tradizioni della gente del posto! Ci hanno accolto con calore e senza alcun pregiudizio verso di noi, donne straniere e occidentali
La guida è stata bravissima e ci siamo sempre sentite a nostro agio
Interessante anche la visita dei monumenti di Delhi, dei templi e del favoloso Taj Mahal
La possibilità di partecipare all'Holi festival insieme alla gente del posto, come persone del posto
Trasferimenti non sempre puntuali a causa del traffico ( ma non era colpa dell'autista!). Nel complesso un viaggio che consiglio
