Location: Delhi and Fatehpur Sikri, India
It was my first trip to India. India has long been on my list as a country to visit. Delhi is an amazing city. I visited Agra, Jaipur, and Udaipur but Delhi remains the most memorable Almost every step I see the same frames: people, people, and once again the people. A few pictures that I took, come from the main shopping street of Old Delhi, Chandni Chowk, where you can see the daily life of the locals. This can not be shown in the pictures. This is a must experience!
Fatehpur Sikri means the "City of Victory”. It is the unique complex of monuments and temples, all in a uniform architectural style, which includes one of the largest mosques in India, the Jama Masjid. Unfortunately, the weather was not good. Extremely in this day the whole district of Agra and Fatehpuri Sikri was covered with fog!
