Le Marais
Le Marais is a perfect get-away in the greater Paris area. Many tourists bypass the district so a visit allows you to see daily neighborhood life.

Stockholm
I would also love the opportunity to visit Sweden for a second time and do more exploring outside of Stockholm. But then I would also enjoy revisiting and reliving my first visit. (The midsummer night photo is entrancing.)

Your description of lack of sanitation is spot on - But there are better places
I have never read anybody describing the lack of sanitation in the Indian towns any better.I am from India and I am sad about it.The problem here is that the government just dont care and neither do the people.People are so used to the lack of cleanliness that, it is almost accepted without a question that a crowded place cannot be clean. I have no clue if there is an escape from it.Having said that, do try visiting the southern states next time, if you travel here. They are better in terms of cleanliness but not a fraction of what it is, in a city like say Toronto( I havent been to the US, but have been to Canada once).It must be great to live in a clean city.I have heard San Fransisco has it's share of issues with urban poverty.But I am sure it is far far better. Take care.

The monkeys are too adorable but I would be freaked out if they were shaking me down. LOL I'm so glad you had a fun trip! It must be hard to see the trash and neglect in parts of India. You want to think of it as a wild and beautiful place, and it is, but with so much over-crowding comes problems of trash and sanitation. I hope that you two enjoyed your time there and are eagerly planning your next trip!!

I need whatever bra those stone statues are (not) wearing. Those are some well held up ladies! LOL But seriously, those are some amazing carvings and while I'm reading this here at work, we'll just call it art. ;) I'm sorry the town didn't have more to offer, but seeing these in person had to have been worth it!

I love the picture of the two of you at the Taj Mahal!! I had no idea that the wife he had built it for had 14 children! What a wonderful and crazy and sad story. Sounds like you guys had a great time, but I'm sorry for the rude tourists.

I love the elephants in their Sunday best. But I bet they were hot, too! Though I'd love an elephant ride. I love the pictures of you at the Temple, and only you would find a train load of French tourists to pass time with!! LOL

Monty pythonish metal detectors...
Each time someone walked past the metal detector, it would sound off. Made noise that reminded me of an 8-bit sound card. Funniest when there would be a steady stream of people passing.

Good start
Great pics! First city where I was introduced to the sharp elbows of international and local tourists. Least elbowing: Darjeeling and Goa (Panaji/Panjim and Palolem Beach) Most: Agra, New Dehli, Jaipur.

Worst train of the trip.
It was the filthiest out of 10 trains we were on. Complete with random vendors, beggars, and several different species of roaches.

Your Old Kentucky Home
Autumn in Kentucky means that the days seem fleeting. Indian Summer arrived accompanied by falling leaves and warm days. It is that lovely lull before winter's blast. It fascinating to think that you and Clem are halfway around the world and experiencing October in India. What a story!
10th October 2011

really sounds exciting
Hope Clem was able to get some rest. Sounds like a great visit, but I\'ll bet there were a dozen more sites you would have liked to have seen. Can\'t wait for the pictures.

It\'s good to hear that you\'re getting to see the sites that you planned. Sounds like you are sampling Indian cuisine when you eat. Hope you are getting enough sleep. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
