Wheels down - in Delhi

We've arrived in Dehli and are aclimatising to the crazyness that is India. 3 days in and it almost seems like normality! Our hotel is in a very convenient part of town called Connaught Place. It's handy for excellent restaurants, shops and many men's lavatories - grey cabinets clearly marked with a skull and cross bone and "Danger 440V".

We spent yesterday taking in the architectural masterpieces of Shah Jahan - the Red Fort and Jama Masjid Mosque. We'll see his most famous handiwork - the Taj Mahal - on Sunday we hope. Equally interesting will the train ride there, our first in India. Wish us luck!

Mary is a big hit with Sikhs!

Ablutions Indian style

Even the 101 has nothing on Dehli traffic

Fantastic blog! I actually love how it's simple on my eyes as well as the data is well written. I am wondering how I may be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which really should do the trick! Have a nice day!
