Old Delhi by Cycle Rickshaw

I went to India in Golden week that was a fist time. I wanted to go there from long time ago but I was worry going there only myself so I joined a tour for 7 days. The first day, I got on the rickshaw in Old Deli that I really felt great and a little fearful. A lot of people, a lot of cars , a lot of sounds,etc…. I felt dizzy because if the world is a kind of big pot, I thought I was in the botom of pot with whirlpool. Japan was edge of pot. India was really melting pot which was the first experience. I felt every days like this. It was also hard travel. The temperature was 42 degrees Celsius every day. I drunk 4 bottle of water a day. When I left Japan, It was about 10 degrees Celsius that difference over 30 degrees. I completely exhausted last two days but I really was enjoyable. I definitely was in the different world.

本当に凄い所だった。一度は行ってみたいと長年思っていたのだが、一人旅は不安だったのと、香辛料の強い料理に弱い私にとってはかなり勇気のいる場所だった。でも、ガンジス河とタージマハルに行くのは夢だった。「行ってきたのだ。」と、いう自己満足で渋るお腹と共に今満喫している。
12時の成田発のデリー行きに乗り夜8時にホテル着、翌日デリー市内観光と共にオールドデリーをリキシャで回った。
車と人とバイクとリキシャと牛やら犬やらがぶつかる寸前で交差する。ベトナム、台北などの混雑と危うさを経験している私でも、ショックだった。毎日が目の回るような一日だった。たとえば、世界が大きな壺だとしたら、インドは壺の底の渦の原点で、さしずめ日本は壺の縁だ。人類のルツボって、「ここなんだ。」と、初めて体験した旅だった。
