It has always been my dream to see the Taj Mahal in person. I first became aware of it after seeing a photo of Princess Diana sitting on a bench outside of the building. I found it fascinating enough that it made me want to learn more about it and why she chose to visit. It was then that I fell in love with the country where it’s located and I promised myself that I would visit there one day. I knew that it would take me awhile to get there because it is so far away, but I figured that it would be worth it.
There have been a lot of countries that I have wanted to visit, but none so much as I have wanted to visit India. I love everything about it, including the language, the history, the architecture and the culture in general. My best friend is from there, and she goes back to visit family about once every two years. I asked her if she would be interested in going with me, and she said she would. I figured it would take me about two years to save up enough money to go on my salary. I made a budget and stuck to it because I wanted to meet my deadline.
When we landed in India, the first thing that I noticed was the beautiful scent in the air. It smelled spicy like foods and mysterious things. We drove throughout the city and I saw animals wandering in the streets. People make sure to drive carefully so that the animals are not harmed and can live freely. The colors there are beautiful and look like a rainbow everywhere you look. The food is amazing and blows away the food that I get in the US at any Indian restaurants.
