This January 3 – 24, 2016, I will be offering a most unusual tour to India that will emphasize India’s women: what womanhood is in ever-changing India today. Although women will be the perspective, men who find this point of view interesting and who wish to understand all women better will find this tour fascinating as well. Together we will unravel the many mysteries of India’s feminine mystique and participate in that mystique too. Starting with India’s emphasis on marriage and all the myriad rituals that surround this important entrance into womanhood, to the beauty treatments that are uniquely Indian, to the age-old traditions of shopping, bargaining and cooking and dining, to the changing aesthetic of how Indian women dress today, will be just some areas of our exploration, interwoven with India’s many different faiths and philosophies.
Our tour will start in the tropical South of Cochin, Kerala and end up in the north in Delhi, making many interesting stops in between.
All women love to shop and we will visit many tempting bazaars so leave lots of room in your bag!
While in the South, let loose and adorn yourself with nature’s gifts: flowers.
Experience first hand the strength of India’s humble construction workers and assorted self-employed vendors.
Although we will look at all the humble and upscale sides of life for Indian women today, we will enjoy staying in the comfort of special and memorable hotels all over India where your pampering will be my first priority. You will have massage options, henna/mehendi options, make-up and facial treatments and be generally fussed over that is truly India’s hallmark. Men can expect to enjoy royal treatment too.
If you read my blog, you know that Indian food is part of my passion and we will savor India’s exquisite cuisine together and even learn how to prepare some of her favorite dishes!
Get ready for the adventure of a life time! You will leave India with new-found insight to an amazing culture and be refreshed and rejuvenated and ready to face the 21st century with a more positive perspective. How many tours can make this claim? Come with an open heart ready to receive and be prepared for the unexpected.
