Some photos from the second half of our trip in India. Once we left New Delhi, everything seemed calmer. First we stayed at a village, the total opposite of New Delhi because we barely saw people walking on the roads. Then we headed to Patiala where we stayed in a 19th century palace turned into a hotel (the most beautiful hotel I have ever spent a few nights in). We even got to see some tourist spots in between all the wedding activities.
It was a trip of a lifetime for sure and it was exactly how people told me it would be, that India is full of extremes. The people can be extremely aggressive or extremely warm and welcoming, and the streets can be extremely dirty and the sights are extremely beautiful, and you can find extreme chaos or total calm. But I really didn't understand what they meant until we experienced it, and we only saw the tip of the iceberg. I'd love to go back one day again. Maybe when Eloise is old enough to remember.
Look for the photos from the wedding in a few weeks, maybe even in the new year.
