My friend and I were cheated by some Indian people on the second day of the trip
We arrived at Delhi Airport on 20th Feb 20th, 2013 using Air India.
[Since Delhi Airport is a place, you need to capitalize both words. Also, dates in English are usually (but not always) done as month/day/year as opposed to Japanese where its day/month/year. Not wrong per se, but just looks more like how a native would write it.]
The flight was not bad and we were looking forward to visiting India at that time.
The first big problem was that we couldn't reach our hotel because of our lack of sense of direction lol...
However, two indian beautiful Indian girls helped me and they kindly told us how to reach the hotel kindly.
[Usually when a racial/national adjective (Japanese, American, etc.) term comes before a noun, it has to come right before the noun. I still understood what you meant, though. However, the second sentence is tricky; saying "they told us how to reach the hotel kindly" means they not only told you how to reach the hotel, but in what way to reach the hotel, like "they told us how to reach the hotel while running/via taxi/etc". What you probably meant is that they were kind when telling you, and as such "kindly" needs to come before the action "told us" to modify their action and not your own.]
We took an auto-rickshaw which girls called for us.
Actually, we distrusted girls and the driver of rickshaw then.
Finally we could reach our hotel and we appreciated those who helped us kindly.
(Some people were dodgy) We felt sorry for distrusting Indian people with prejudice. The second day, we were going to go to New Delhi Station to get our train tickets. The man who came from Varanasi said to us that we couldn't buy any tickets for the trains for today and tomorrow train and we should have gone to DTTDC. We felt this information was incorrect and we didn't listened to it. After we left him, another man talked to us and told us the same thing. Because we don't know about India City, we believed what they said by little by and little. And We decided to go to DTTDC and take a rickshaw, but he brought us to another unofficial center.
We didn't notice it because of our lack of sense of direction lol... At first, we didn't intend to buy tickets there, finally somehow we bought the tours. After all, we canceled our tour and 75% of the payment was returned to me. (The kind hotel staff told me that we bought an expensive tour.) I know this is the classic way of learning from one's mistakes.
[Not entirely sure what this is what you mean]
Some people say that it's my fault. I thought I knew this kind of the problem often happens in India... I'm so shocked and I can't trust anyone, even the kind hotel staff. Take care in India~~~! I'm lucky that I lost only my money. 5 days left: I will enjoy it :D
Scam-artists are in all big cities, and you have to be very discerning whom to trust. Hopefully nothing else bad happens while you're in India! がんばってる！
