Photo Diary: Delhi, India June 2012

Jama Masjid – India’s largest Muslim temple.

We took our first trip to India in June to visit one of our suppliers in Jodhpur. Our first stop was Delhi.

Thali meal – yum!

India is a riot of contradictions – beautiful colors, squalor and poverty, heady scents of incense and spices and the stench of the sewer. It has many religions and just as many opinions. It isn’t an easy country to wrap your head around, but it’s definitely one of the most interesting. And Delhi is no different.
