New York Times "Frugal Traveler" columnist Lucas Peterson has been on the beat...in India!
Mumbai, he writes, "is an electric and complicated city, an extraordinary place, both uplifting and heartbreaking. Its eclectic composition of different groups and cultures makes it a difficult city to define, but for many, it’s a city that represents possibility." It's a "happening" city much like New York.
Peterson spent hours walking the streets of Kolkata and found it the best way to get to know the city. Kolkata's rich literary tradition, strong educational institutions, spicy Bengali cuisine and love of fried street food make the city "a rewarding place to explore."
Peterson also offers India travel tips. Read his stories here:
