I was fortunate to visit India earlier this year.
India, home to 1.3 billion people, 29 states and 22 regional languages, is arguably one of the most popular travel destinations on earth. The country is known for its hustle and bustle capital New Delhi, its vibrant culture and picturesque scenery.
A few things I found interesting:
If you love mangoes and I do, you’ve got India to thank – The country is the world’s biggest producer and consumer of mangoes, accounting for more than 40% of the world’s supply. In fact, Indians love mangoes so much they made it their national fruit.
India has the most post offices in the world – With a massive population, comes the need to communicate. India boasts 155,015 post offices which are regularly used by locals. And no I didn't use one! I gave up sending postcards years ago. Email or texting from my phone is just too easy.
