    The Spanish word for a wide-brimmed straw hat is sombrero, and while the word is commonly associated with a particular high-domed style that is also a symbol of Mexican culture, you’ll find lots of other styles—like the flat-topped kind pictured here—worn throughout the country. Would you wear one of these colorful hats to protect yourself from the blazing sun?

    Deep in the heart of the sprawling Indian metropolis of Delhi lies Old Delhi, a walled city that was founded in the 17th century. Old Delhi is a maze of narrow, bustling streets filled with historical architecture and traditional culture.

    The Taj Mahal—one of the most iconic landmarks in India (and the world)— took around 22 years to construct. It’s an architectural wonder: All four sides of the grandiose structure are symmetrical, creating a mirror image effect.
