#321 indian highways

321/365 indian highways, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Started a 3-day tour of the Golden Triangle (Delhi, Jaipur, Agra) with our reliable driver and our own taxi. Even though he warned us about the highways ahead, I couldn’t quite imagine what we’d see and experience! A journey of some 200 km took us about 5 hours. Traffic is horrendous, beyond words! You can expect to encounter anything – and often coming towards you, on the wrong side of the road.

I really felt sorry for these mothers without any protection on the motorbikes. This mother is even holding a baby in her arms! And then there are the cows, of course. Just lying around the highway lane, or walking any which way, right in the middle of the road. It really takes iron nerves, and amazingly fast reflexes to drive in India!
