I have to confess - I'm getting a little freaked out by reading some of the posts about India. I was just about to book a two week vacation for my husband and myself and I started reading posts containing comments about how difficult, dirty, emotionally exhausting, etc. people have found India to be. So, can you tell me what specifically is so difficult about India? What were some of your experiences that made you feel this way? I've done some world traveling and seen "third world" poverty but I'm concerned after reading on this forum that India will far exceed anything I've seen and turn out to be a horrible experience. Don't get me wrong, I've also seen peoples' positive comments about India, but it seems people never fail to also mention the, shall we say, "less good" things. The tour that we'll be doing is the usual Taj/Rajasthan circuit with a private car and driver, guide and Oberoi hotels, so it'll be pretty cushy, but I just want to know mentally and emotionally (and physically?) what to expect since India seems to elicit such strong emotions from folks. Please share your thoughts and stories - I want to know what I'm getting into!
