India was incredibly chaotic! No traffic rules, every car honking its horns every few seconds, crowds on top of crowds, a definite experience!
An Indian "King" at an old fort outside of Pune. He turned out to be our tour guide, albeit speaking no English!
Over one half of the vehicles on the road in Pune were motorcycles.
We stayed at the Pune Westin, an oasis in a sea of chaos! Here was our view, all compliments of Microsoft!
I rode Auto Rickshaws around Pune. Open doored 3 wheel taxis, that put one right in the middle of the action!

A sidewalk barber!
Most cows were untended, although these boys were tending this cow.
I saw families of 5 on motorcycles!

The entrance to the tran station. Ghandi's saying is not doing well!
The Economic Times, in desrepair!
Mahatma Ghandi, a great man, and his image is many places.
The view from our hotel in Mumbai.
We believe this was a graduation ceremony at the Gateway to India.
The Taj Mahal hotel in the background.

One, or the other!
Cricket is the national sport, very fun to watch!
Like father, like son!
