Canadian's First Time in INDIA - Holi Festival 2019
Alright. Guys let's start, our engines cuz we've got a flight to, India. And. This. Is where you'll be starting your trip here in India if you're coming through Delhi, so, we've landed at the International, Airport oh. My. Gosh and there's stray dogs everywhere, here at the airport, very cool. We. Don't need GPS this, is our budget special, boot books of random hotel I don't know if I pick the best place for the value. But. Guys, I'm off to bed now I'll see you in the morning good, morning guys we're trying to catch a bit of a sunrise here, this morning though I I've, never seen anything like this it is the, thickest, haze, I have ever ever seen or imagined, the buildings right up there you cannot even see the windows it's just like an outline, to silhouette, this is like a place, that I've never ever might, like you can imagine that's. What I'm all about though guys I'm so excited to be here in India. Hello. What's. Up my, friends. Are here my friend, look, at his water. It, almost looks a bit like tar it's, just quite interesting. It's. Bubbling, I don't know why, how. Much. What's. Your name no no Tomas I'm Kirsten. This. Is somewhere that I've been extremely excited, to visit for a long time now I know it's gonna be like no other country I've ever traveled, before and after, just being here for a short eight hours with a quick sleep last night I can. Already guarantee you it's out of this world. So. That was a magical sunrise. We just finished up with Yamuna, got and now we're like how do we get out of here because we don't have internet we don't have any taxes, around here nobody speaks English and there. Is a beautiful cow here relaxing. Enjoying, the day light. Instead. Of wild, dogs you have wild, cows and they're just grazing, in the garbage right now oh my, god this. Is crazy. Yeah. See that couch she has a necklace on I'm, gonna ask around a little bit more about it but I know that in India the, cows are deemed to be holy and that's, why they roamed freely people, don't eat cows here they, are sacred creatures, and you'll, see them all over even, in like the downtown, square of Delhi. This. Is pretty much how traffic works or, doesn't. Work here in Delhi lots, and lots of it zig zagging sporadic. Movements, hunting. In between each other like there's really not. Much space between cars I should probably get back inside here I might lose my head I. Should probably mention today is actually my birthday guys, I've just turned 26, it's, a big day, never, thought I'd celebrate a birthday in Delhi but I'm, open to it and with, that being said as you guys might be able to tell I'm always one step closer to, world-class, dad jokes. What, a meeting stopped India without somebody getting sick, and we, are currently waiting on mild air we had to stop here I had my little moment this morning I don't, know what it is we've like literally not, eaten any Street food we've been drinking bottled, water brushed, our teeth with bottled water, but. I know I've happened there is something that they have it in not that I have it job site right chips we had some rich and I'm the only. India. Will not stop us so we. Are only. Half dead but, you have bad stomach as well yeah but, I'm over it now so. I think we're like prepping ourselves we've, gotten our bacterias, out of the way only, one of us remains. Dude. Yeah, when are you gonna get. Okay. Guys. We have made it to Chandni, Chowk and this, is basically, the beginning of Old Delhi this is going to be an even, more busy. And old, style outside of the city. It's very cultural, side and we're. Gonna be going into one of the local markets, here it could be one of the most overwhelming, things I've ever experienced, we got the boys out here just relaxing, it's. A total vibe here what. Is it it's corn oh. You. Know I don't think Delhi necessarily, has a ton of places that you can feel like you're getting away from the crowd but, I'm sure coming to this park helps open, up a little bit into chutney chalk we go everywhere. You go exposed. Wiring just, above your head I can smell these amazing, samosas, right here but, I just don't know it being sick for the next three days is worth a delicious, samosa, we'll keep walking let's go check it out. I think. This is a good time as never to let you guys know that today, I'm actually working with epidemics, down and with, this sound of Delhi I also wanted to show you guys the sound of epidemic, they've been the way I've been making my videos on YouTube for like two years I've been exclusively. Using their music it's, the only reason my videos are not demonetized right now from music to sound effects all using, one source you don't have to look anywhere else so let's, continue on with our explorations.
Of Delhi. We're, gonna be going into a Sikh temple which, is one of the main religions, here in India, and with, that we have to wash your hands, and we have to wash your feet so the first step. On. The way into the, exemplar, we're, gonna be washing our feet we, all need to cover our hair so even the men will, need to wear some sort of a head wrap so we're gonna go collect one of those looking. Fresh melted. The. Best word for this place is culture, shock like we're learning and seeing, so many new things it's. Crazy. This. Place, right here it's. Like an oasis, like you come in here you don't hear the horns you don't have the crowds you've, space to sell you can just sit on the carpet, it's open, it's free to everyone it's very cool spots to check out if you're ever in Delhi. People, will find a way to get the day-to-day done in this case you got six or seven men pushing this huge, load down. This busy street. Like. You could not fit trucks down here and so that's, one of the ways they do it so we've, got the. Delhi. Express. He's. Gonna be taking us to a, little rooftop area we have no idea how far it is but we told him you want to go to Masjid, something something, he's. Taking us there right now. So, if mountain are playing the low game right now it's called rate that board and basically we're. Rating whether a horn was, needed, or not and so here, in Delhi people like to use them very liberally if, it's like you, know get out of my way I'm about to run you over preventative, we give it a 6 to 10 if, it's for awareness we give it a 7 out of 10 it's. Useful if you're just honking the horn because you like the sound of it that's a 1 but the guy in front of him can't go any faster so wow wow he didn't honk that's, actually, also something you can rate. Was. The dominant horn give. It a 6. All. Right that one was probably about, about, a 3. So, right now we're going through the spice market and I can feel it in my nose my throat it's, actually really nice it opens it up a little bit. Spicy. Everyone. Is popping, sneezing. It's. Hooked strong. I. Feel. Like they put me in a yard full of pepper yeah. Domon, going, shoe get. Lost we're. Being warned by the local man here it's probably best to keep moving the, monkeys are getting very aggressive towards us, space. Surrounded, us one. Thing I'll definitely say about Delhi is that your senses, will be heightened, their kind of own adrenaline, a little bit while you're first here now obviously once you become a little bit more used to this that might not be the case but, for me it's like serious. Sensory, overload I, mean it, is the, busiest place I've ever been the most chaotic place I've ever been. Our. Driver just got out of the tuk-tuk to go and move stuff so we can drive around a truck look. At him go, Thank. You Man thank you. Nice. And tight guys. We've been stuck, here for 15, minutes nothing is moving. You. Luck everyone. We're. Making it through we're making boobs, tonight. Guys. This. Is a video that best describes, Ellie, just. A cow walking down the street guys, lighting some fire I'm, just trying to get back there oh. My, god this. Is. Hectic. A word. That's. An awesome dog what's his name. I. Feel. Exhausted. Just, drained completely drained. Tonight's, my birthday dinner. And I. Would. Rather just go to bed right now I'm so tired after getting stuck in that traffic I really, take my hat off to people that just work. Through that traffic every day but we are home to legend, we've. Made about my, fives all around, gifts. Of surviving, those, a week okay, cathy. Has surprised, me tonight for my birthday cheers. To that sparkling, life. Comment. Down below if you're part of the sparkle squad 26, years old and enjoying, every minute of it one, of the things that I was most excited, about, all, of India is this right here the butter chicken with extra spices it.

She's, confident, I told you that's how you do it everyone I'm gonna try it I'm gonna try it he's got it it's better to step in front of the expensive, cars because, they're less likely to want to hit you they don't want to damage their vehicle we're now leaving Delhi and we actually originally had a train booked this morning, but we. Decided not to get on the train because Cathy was feeling a little bit sick her, time had come I. Know. Pit. Stop number one we've, been waiting to get gas now for probably 30 minutes there's. Such a huge queue. YouTube, I use a youtuber. My. Channel is called PewDiePie, don't, forget to hit subscribe. By. Hitting. Like, button, welcome, to Agra, couldn't, already tell I have no energy but, I'm gonna get some rest so for tomorrow I can show you something absolutely, incredible ok, guys good morning we are about to go see one, of the seven wonders in the world one of the most well known things to do here in India and guess, who just told me an interesting fact because we're about three hundred meters away from the Taj Mahal, our taxi, told us to get out and we had to walk you.
Wanna Explain why that is yes because the Dutchman heart is made of white marble and, all, the pollution and the car circulation, seriously, starting, to become yellowish and that's why they are closed the, perimeter 400 meters away the Taj Mahal super. Server it's crazy, so let's, see if it's a yellow Taj Mahal or a white one. It's, right here one of the seven wonders in the world be Taj Mahal, and its massive posse, of admirers. It. Is so, busy, it's, insane, you. Can see the light rates just subtly touching the side of the Taj it's a beautiful, night so, Raj, was just explaining to me here that the Taj Mahal was actually, made by 20,000. People a thousand. Elephants, the elephants have to bring in marble from 250. Kilometres away and, look. At the size of this thing guys it is stunning. It is a masterpiece, it's, probably the most beautiful building, I've ever seen and when you consider the fact that it was built in what the fifteen hundred's taught in 1631, competing, scenic Apogee and is it true that all the people that worked on the Taj Mahal had, their hands cut off no this is just sumo nobody got behind nobody took that Hey so that's all it's all a rumor this is just food I mean, I have to say I'm happy to hear that but deep down inside I was like that was such a cool story the reason it was made was actually the king here had a very beautiful third, wife she, was Persian, and he, wanted to commemorate here with this mausoleum and so what you're looking at is actually a Persian, style building, and there's. A mosque here and then there's another building right on the other side it's absolutely, symmetrical the, whole Taj from, the inside, to the outside is symmetrical, the. Only thing that is not symmetrical, is the fact that the king's tomb and the queen's tomb are different, the history here is so so rich and I have to say in a world where so many of the landmarks, don't live up to the hype this is one of them it's so beautiful, you'll definitely have to compete with crowds but that's not a surprise to anyone here I can't hold on much longer. All. Right so we're going into the mausoleum and for that we need shoe covers just like Raj has on here so the middle is the Queen and it's smaller but the outside one is the king one and that's the only non symmetrical, thing here. See that right there that is one piece of marble each of these are slabs of marble that, were intricately, carved to, be almost like a gate enclosure, and. To think like this country would have been probably facing, famine, starvation, back. In the day there was been so many people that. Again, were the have-nots and then this guy was building, a super, Palace not, even that place, to commemorate his death, that's. Super extra. So. This is Tori and Tori is our driver we just found him outside the hotel and he offered to drive us gave us an officer price and seemed like a nice guy and Satori is gonna be driving us right now - sorry. What was the name of it. Being. The robot this is gonna be one, of the craziest, places, to, witness what is currently going on in India, this is Holi or known as holy and, it is the color festival, where people take dried paint and all sorts of neon colors and throw it at each other it's gonna be absolutely wild, what do you do you can give, dogs foods now. Feeding. Up, your, dogs I love. The obsessed, and not, my dogs that htdocs three, dogs. I'm so confused. You. Do this every day yes every. Day. Look. At these happy suppers looking, out excited, there every. Morning, I come they, love you yeah, I. Love. All that you must meet, you Wow. Sixty. Dogs every day yes yes that's, a lot do. Most people do that, most. People yes mostly, into people when and eight twenty rupees every, day. Very. Generous but no problem, god help me. God. Watching me all you do good that's why. Yes. T-shirt. Yeah. Okay. Going. To be covered, in paint and everything, we're wearing is gonna get destroyed. It's. Nice but how much is it only, 700. 700. Weeks a lot so, I give you yes. Northern. Or 1200. I. Think. It's fine you like it yes, I, think. I think I look good Oh. After. Some fierce negotiations. We basically, just told her taxi driver to come up and speak reason to them we, got this all for 1200, rupees. Get. Tomorrow here oh. You. Got it brush Oh. Our. Driver Tory is full of surprises, I think, I'm gonna link this phone number down below the, chaos is already rising a little bit we're starting to see people just covered, in the dried paint now I'm gonna be putting this away safely, in my little, protective pack so I'll see in a sec.
There We go I don't know why they. Just open the door. I haven't. Had about 63, selfies, today this. Is what happens when you ask a group of guys to throw paint at you. Not. Only doesn't care about animals, he has been stopping and giving money everything. We've seen he just gave food to a family, he's the real deal guys if you're coming that Agra or anywhere near I'm, sure he'll meet you his, number will be down below you can want to have him here of a living, legend I'm washing my hands and, I'm bunkie, literally, it happened so fast who just and, gone, it was complete, one touch and go and he ran off of my glasses so, luckily as always Tory sprung into action I don't know how but within 10 seconds he had a juice box he threw it up to the rooftop there, the monkey like grabbed. On to the juice box still had the ray-bans usually, they end up dropping the glasses cuz they don't they lose interest is there something tastier, but, this, one was a smart monkey he kept both so, he had the juice box ravenson started running further off the walls there but then luckily he decided to leave it there so we just paid one of the locals to go get across and holy today, the pre holy was, a penitent, I really. Can't see a better place to end India so far I have loved, every minute of this it has been a huge, mix-up, to everything, that I'm used to in a trip and I couldn't recommend it more to those of you who, are ready to experience, something that is full-on raw, and real I want to give a huge thank you today to epidemics. Sound if you want to try it 30 days no commitment, it's, completely, free there's a link listed down below in the description is, an assess if you're gonna make videos here on YouTube so check it out and guys see. You next Saturday let's, get lost again in that next one.
