In 2009 my husband got a job in Singapore.
Since then I live 6 months per year in the Netherlands and the other 6 months in Singapore.
During my months in Singapore, I accompany my husband to wherever his job brings him.
At one point he worked 18 months in India. I was with him there for 6 months in total.
We stayed in Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore. Not cities of our choice, but we had a good time nevertheless.
Luckily we also managed to do some traveling every now and then. We went to Delhi, Agra, Rajasthan (Jaipur, Udaipur, Amber, Pushkar), Kerala (Kochi, Varkala), Goa, Mysore and Chandigarh. No, I can’t complain;-).
I enjoyed the Ganesh Chaturthi festival enormously, Holi was a spectacle and a feast for the eyes (as long as you don’t get any color powder IN your eyes;-)) and visiting Nek Chand Rock Garden was a dream come true.
I danced tango and DJ-ed in Mumbai, Pune and Bangalore, met lovely, interesting people and made new friends.
All in all, India was fascinating, colorful, surprising, awful, extreme and overwhelming.
