Lots of dust & stomach problems...

India is VERY dusty. Zooms might help prevent too many lens changes and dirty sensor issues.

And Ciproflaxin; an antibiotic  for your stomach...don't leave home without it! Especially in Asia and even more so in India!!! If you have a stop over in Hong Kong or Bangkok you can buy it over the counter for 1/2 or a 1/3 of US prices. Also Imodium.

Keep your eyes on your gear, watch out for street scams, don't take snacks from strangers on trains.

It is a magnificent, colorful journey that boggles the mind; palaces of the Rajahs, wide spread poverty, cows standing walking and napping in the streets, in doorways, even on roof tops.You will find it difficult to decide what NOT to shoot.

Have fun!
