Globe Trekker

Ultimate India (#329)

Thousands of years of civilization have given India a wealth of historic sites - the Rajput city of Jaisalmer in the desert; the monument to love, the Taj Mahal in Agra; and Udaipur, home of the maharajas. Exploring the stunning sub-continent's landmarks and its culture and cuisine are Megan McCormick, who blows herself away with the hot, native cuisine; Holly Morris, who gets a close-up view of Indian sanitation; Andrew Daddo, who tries his hand (and the rest of his body) at the ancient practice of yoga; and Justine Shapiro, who hugs her way to spiritual enlightenment.
