I have been already one week in India and finally I have some time to talk about it. “India is full of surprises” is my main motto being in here. You have to be ready for everything, because you never know what’s going to happen with you. It’s a experience of my lifetime for sure.
I’m living here one month and with one week I have seen quite a lot – markets, Taj Mahal, Agra city, India Gate, street life and driving culture. Even though I’m not a big fan of spicy food I have been tasted some really good food in here. Unfortunately my stomach can not handle the street food, so I can’t taste anything out there. I even wash my teethe with bottle water because tap water is not safe to drink. I love most of the indian people – they are so polite and friendly in here. Even when they are living on the street they are smiling and waving to you. Of course some of them are really rude and loud, but these kind of people you can find everywhere.
I love Indian fashion – you can see all these bright colours and patterns everywhere. They have so many beautiful cashmere scarves, handmade shoes and handbags, silver and gold jewellery with really good prices. At the markets you really have to know how to bargain because you can save so much money if you are a good bargainer.
I took mainly basic items with me because I need to survive this heat, dust and pollution. I have been wearing a lot of wide trousers or culottes with basic t-shirts, long dresses with sweaters to prevent mosquito bites and cover myself from not showing to much skin. Even though teenagers are wearing shorts and skirts nowadays I feel myself better if everybody is constantly not watching me. It happens anyway because I’m blond and I have lighter skin than they do, so selfies with strangers are really common in everyday basis.
Yesterday I wore basic top with skinny jeans and I threw this light dress on top of my outfit to cover myself just a little, but I left it open because it’s so hot outside. I don’t wear anything with open toe outside of hotel because it’s so dusty and dirty on streets. I only took sneakers with me because they are perfect for walking around the city and they protect my feet as well. I would like to buy more jewellery form India to spice up my outfits just a little and they are so much more cheaper in here!
