This is a personal list created as a photo-journal of my recent trip to India.

I hope that you, dear lurker, can learn a bit about my recent trip and perhaps a little about the country of India.

This list can also serve as a list of games about India, although other lists of that nature have been previously created. That being said. I am happy for you to comment below of any other games about India that I may have missed and I will attempt to add them 'chronologically' to the list and write an anecdote and add a picture.

I'm the third on the left.

We left for India on the 14th of November. Here we are at the Melbourne Internation Airport. We flew Singapore Airlines via Singapore. Destination? Dehli of course!

The flight was great. I watched a couple movies and played some trivia, chess and checkers versus my friends. Too bad they didn't have Die Macher!!

We arrived in Dehli a bit before midnight. By the time we reached our hotel, we had about 5 hours available for a quick sleep before we had to board the train for Agra. Needless to say, I didn't see much of Dehli, yet.

Traffic was insane. Vehicles, Bikes, People, Anything is on the roads. As we drove to the hotel, people had lit fires beside the road (burning garbage) about every 30 metres. The air was incredibly strong and completely filled with pollution and smoke.

Here we are at the train station in the morning. The clock in the background shows the unearthly time in the morning we were there. That's 6:30am!

Please note the hazy sky in the background. There is no blue sky in Delhi. The train, as usual, was late. Luckily we had assigned seats on the train and didn't have to travel 'Common Class', which includes hanging in the doorway.

We arrived in Agra and went to visit the Taj Mahal. I wanted a picture taken exactly like the above cover, but alas, it wasn't meant to be. The problem with being in pictures, is that one needs to rely on another to take the picture (barring fancy photography stuff, which I don't have).

At the Taj Mahal, our guide kept stopping us...
"Sir, please come here, come here, come here, come here"
"See how the Taj Mahal is completely symmetrical"
He stopped us every 5 metres with another symmetrical annecdote and photo opportunity.

The Taj Mahal cost us 750 Rupees to enter (about $15). Indians only pay 10 Rupees. Go Figure.

The Taj Mahal was looted by the British and the gold and precious stones were all stolen. The Taj Mahal, although splendourous today, would have been incredible with a gold top and covered in these stones. The Semi-Precious stones remain today.

The Taj Mahal is built from white marble and all the colour on it is from semi-precious stones which have been in-laid into it, like the picture above. All the black writing is also from stones inlaid into the marble. Incredible.

At the Taj Mahal there are two Mosques. The king built two so that "it is totally symmetrical", although only one was used, as the second mosque faced the wrong (opposite) direction.

The following day we stayed in Agra and visited the Red Fort. This is a prime example of "Palace Building in India". The son of the King who made the Taj Mahal overthrew his father and imprisoned him here, a few miles down the river from the Taj Mahal. The father could look at his 'creation' everyday, but was never able to visit it.

The Red Fort is 2 square kilometers and was surrounded by a moat, filled with alligators or crocodiles or whatever they had. After this moat was the external wall and then a 'jungle' area filled with Tigers and stuff, then the Internal Wall. The Red Fort was never successfully assaulted, as gardens, farms, markets and everything needed to survive were found within. It really was more like a city which contained the palaces.

We were also told that the son liked to dress up as a woman and visit the 'Woman's Bazaar'. He, being king, was the only man allowed into the Woman's Bazaar and history says he had a fair number of concubines...

We returned by train back to Delhi. We then spent a few days there visiting the markets, a local church and a children's home.

The market was nuts. A few stores are 'fixed price' the majority are 'barter your butt off'. It became a game of ours to try to get an item cheaper than someone else in our group got it for.

At one point a boy tried to sell us this 'toy', 5 for 100 Rs (Rupees). "too expensive" we said and walked on. The next guy, probably overhearing us offered us 10 for 100 Rs, which one of my friends agreed to. I was willing to only pay 5 Rs each, and I only wanted four of them, so I made the offer to the man and he took it. Another friend picked up about 40 for 150 Rs, after which we were offered another 35 for 100 Rs. We then returned to the original boy who tried to sell us 5 for 100 Rs. We showed him our haul and said "too expensive mate, you could've had a sale."

So, the "toy" began at 20 Rs each and ended up at 3 Rs each. This is typical of most things you are offered through the Delhi barter system.

The Indian Army in Delhi practicing it's drills. In the military areas they did have some old tanks beside the road as momentos of the 1940's. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get any 'out the window' pictures, so you'll have to suffice with this one.

Then came the Train Trip of Death:
Our guide brought us to our seats on the train and bid us farewell and told us another man would meet us in Lucknow. After he left, some Indians came to us and told us we were in their seats. Hastily my friend, Justin, grabbed our ticket and sure enough, it said C-1 and we were in carriage C-2. We grabbed our bags and walked back through the train to the previous carriage. Someone was in our seats! We told them they were in our seats, but they wouldn't move. So we figured the ticket checker would sort it out and we sat infront and behind them.

When the ticket checker arrived, Justin pulled out the ticket and showed it to the man to sort things out. But it was our return ticket! So when he pulled out our Delhi to Lucknow ticket we saw that it indeed did say C-2. Our guide was right. The train was now pretty full, and we doubted that we would get our luggage on the luggage racks if we moved carriages again. So Justin went with the Ticket Checker to C-2. At C-2 Justin showed our ticket, and the people sitting in our seats showed an identical ticket. The Ticket Checker examined both tickets and eventually showed Justin that our ticket said 19-11-2007 and said "Twenty". For today was the 20th!!!! Justin shrugged at the man with limited English and casually walked back to us.

Eventually we lost our seats to legitimate travellers, and everytime the Ticket Checker saw us, he would just shake his head and move on. I prayed that we wouldn't be thrown off the train in some village along the way, which we found out later, is the normal procedure for people travelling with an expired ticket. We also found out that the Ticket Checker would have gotten into big trouble for not throwing us off if he was found out.

So, the 9 hour train trip had me standing or sitting on the floor IMBETWEEN CARRIAGES for 5 hours. My bowels also chose this time to inflict me with "Delhi Belly"! Above is a picture of the "Trainspotting" toilet. Yes, your guts are emptied straight onto the tracks below. Can you say "Hygenic"?

We finally got to Lucknow. Lucknow is the site of a major war of Indian independance against the British. This picture is of the remains of the British Residence that was there in the 1800's.

The site now contains a museum with many artifacts (rusty as) from that fight.

So what is Indian food like? In a word, spicy!

Eight of us were crammed into this vehicle with our suitcases strapped to the roof. The driver had no qualms about denting the roof by stepping on it. Almost every car had dents on every fender.

We then travelled by car for three hours in the evening to Chandigrah. Chandigarh is on the edge of Punjab which is on the Pakistan border, and is about 200kms north of Delhi.

Chandigarh was the cleanest city we visited. You could see about 500m before the haze of pollution blocked your sight!

This picture humours me for two reasons. One is the cow eating out of the bin. You see, cows in India are sacred. So, they leave home in the morning. Forage all day long out of trash piles and garbage bins, and return in the evening. Which gives weight to the saying "Until the cows come home"

The second reason for taking this picture was to get a picture of the 'hooked cross' which is an Indian symbol. Here is a store called "Swastik" with a symbol on either side. So, where did Hitler's Swastika originate? Perhaps you can tell me.

We spent about 5 days in Chandigarh. One of the places we visited was a rock garden. It contained waterfalls, mythilogical creatures, small doorways (about 4-feet tall!). It was very impressive and only cost 10 Rupees to enter! Many of the structures were built using recycled material.

After our stay in Chandigarh we headed back to Delhi in the morning by train. It was only a 3 hour trip, but I can assure you that by the end of the trip, I was ready to give expansion a try.

A game expansion that combines Nuclear War with Indian Rails?! What a great idea!

This gourmet breakfast was vegetarian and hot as buggery!

In Dehli we had about 12 hours before our airplane trip home. Before we left, we decided to hit the Golden Arches for a taste of home. It wasn't really the same as an Australian McDonald's as the beefless menu will confirm.

I hope this Geeklist has given you some insight into my trip, and also taught you a thing or two about India, and the games we play about it.

I left off Explore India, as it has no pictures and pretty much falls under this title.

As always, I have to end with a picture of my girls in their brand new indian (Punjab) outfits. Aren't they adoreable!
