Air Quality

We are just finishing a fabulous two weeks on the Spotlight tour and had a wonderful time. One thing that we were not prepared for was the poor air quality in Delhi and Varanasi. You will notice this initially in the Delhi airport, which appeared to have smoke lingering in the terminal. A combination of fog, heavy pollution and smoke plagued us for the first three days, but there was relief once we got to Agra. Many of the Asian tourists were wearing surgical masks, and most of our group felt congestion and allergic symptoms the first several days.
Overall, our weather was nearly perfect otherwise and it did not rain even once. A wonderful experience and my only reason for posting is so that you will be prepared.
Namaste!
