Then you realize that three are some things yousimply cannot prepare for: the intensity of the massive poverty; the religious diversity; shocking government hotels;antiquity still everywhere you care to look; the scale of theTaj Mahal; the mystique and audacious grandeur of theancient Mogul architecture; the chauvinism; theenvironmental desecration«and the traffic.
