Poverty, Polluted and Popualated sums it up nicely. But still very intriguing... A huge contrast of foreign vs familiar. Cell phones and cattle roaming the city streets? Amazing!

It amazes me how 18 million people can live in one city; and over ONE BILLION people in the entire country. India is the largest democracy in the world. I have a new respect for space. Truly.

The poverty here is devastating. It's everywhere, and there is a lot of it- more than I had expected. It feels as though I am traveling in a 3rd world country- I was prepared to be experiencing more of a developing country. There seems to be a lack of a middle class? Interesting.

John's (my friend from Florida) flight has arrived safely and we're off to see the Taj Mahal tomorrow and then continuing on to the Pakistan border for a camel safari in the desert.
