It made us feel better when we walked into the travel agency to find 3-4 other groups that all went through the exact same thing as us.
Our plan was to buy train tickets to go up north but little did we know that you have to book them at least 2 weeks in advance! Landon had traveled through South East Asia and said that he could buy a ticket and hop onto the train the same day, but with 1.21 billion people in India… that's not possible, ever. So after the tiring train station we were vulnerable and ended up hiring a driver for 2 weeks to drive us through Rajastan, the desert of India. There were pros and cons to it looking back, but it all added to the indian experience.
So this is my On the Road series. It was my first time on the highway and I was literally taking pictures the entire 6 hours because everything was so new and intriguing to me. One of my favorite things about the Indian people is how expressive and decorative they are, with everything and anything they do, wear, or drive in that matter! Even if it was falling apart with dirt caked all over, they had hand-painted rims, metal flowers along the sides and every color of the rainbow. Here's just a little taste of it all.
