Bungee jumping, rafting and paragliding in Nepal, in the surroundings of Kathmandu and Pokhara.

From Calcutta to Delhi
India has a busy and bizarre street life
Traveling from Calcutta to Delhi you can see many cultural highlights, in Bishnupur, Agra, Dhanbad, Bodhgaya, Varanasi and Jaipur. Street life is busy and bizarre, but outside the crowded cities are paddies and villages without cars. The poverty is just like you see on tv, the only difference is that you can't zap away from disturbing images. 21 photos.
