A few general Questions for those who have done the tour...
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide. We're heading to India/Nepal! A few quick questions:
Did you use more Rupees or USD? For example at Bizarres or when making purchases, did you exchange money and use local currency?
Did you bring extra $1 for the kids? I heard, that the children will recite the US Presidents or States/Capitals for USD? Did you encounter this and if so, would you advise against it or encourage it? I co-worker said they will swarm you if you even give a hint of giving something away.
I plan on bringing non-conforming clothes, even for yoga...some dresses are sleeveless due to the weather, but using a scarf almost all the time to cover shoulders. Any other tips?
Rumor has it, mosquitoes are at record high this year. Did anyone else encounter this?
Finally, the thought of not having any "fresh" food for almost three weeks is ugh...I know even in Africa, at some resorts we were told the lettuce or fresh veggies were ok to eat. Did you find this at any resorts in India? Or did you stick to the peel it, cook it or toss it rule?
Appreciate your tips!
