Greetings to travel lovers,
I am Benyamin Rezaei, a traveler who writes about his memoirs, and in this podcast, I want to share my experiences with you about my trip to India. It was exactly last year that I decided to take a trip to India. Well, six years ago, I took a trip to Mumbai. It was a trip of several days. But it wasn’t a trip that I was rich in. I dreamed a lot and I will never forget it. On a rainy day in Vancouver, I had rented a room in a house. My house had a balcony and it was autumn. It was raining. To go to India, to go on an adventure in India, I was tired of the continuous rain in this humid city, and unfortunately, some cities have great names and customs, but when you go and live in them, you will see that it is not like what the people say and it is very different, it was like living in a part of Canada and what happened to us. The next thing I wanted to tell you about the trip to India is when we came back from Canada to Iran, after that time the embassies were closed, then I heard that the embassies were opened. I did this European tour, after that I heard that his visa was opened in India, we went to the embassy, got fingerprinted, it took two weeks, I think it was almost a hundred and a half hundred, and the cost of the visa was with an airline, I think it was Qatari. I finally arrived in a city that I like I had a country where I wanted to experience life in a different way. I had a ticket to Mumbai, the most populous city in India. You know that India has a population of one billion and four hundred million people. Its capital is New Delhi, but its most populous city is Mumbai. It is a crowded city. In a lawless way, in a simple way, full of poor people, full of tuk-tuks, Indian barbershops in its streets, cows running left and right, temples, people wearing orange, and this was fascinating to me. Seeing the contrasts in the world is very fascinating to me. I was looking at the Gate of India. The hotel I had taken was near the Gate of India. It was a relatively hot and ordinary hotel because many special hotels were expensive. I also wanted to see this country for a month because my visa was for one month, so I went. There was no shower in the hotel. I left the air conditioner on and came to discover the city for myself. I went to the Gate of India. It was interesting to me that people from all over India came to stand in front of this gate and take a picture with their wives. They took photos with the symbol of Mumbai, the Gate of India.
