In front of India gate in Delhi.
Mom will be happy to hear that this is a country that I could live in.  I was happy to get 4 hours of sleep on the 16 hour flight here and Patrick's luggage didn't show up and finally he sprained his ankle on the way to a car.  It was a good start to the trip. 

I was presently suprised by the abundance of greenery in Delhi and Gabi and I enjoy a somewhat quiet walk on our first morning after not being able to sleep later than 5am.  While the streets were quiet in the early morning they started to get crowded by 9am and by 10am it seemed like chaos.  Cars battling against the three wheeled rickshaw's were a constant struggle and caused the air to be filled with car horns. 

We saw all of Delhi today which included a memorial to Mahatma Gahndi, a burial place that was a predecessor to the Taj Mahal, an ancient mosque and a special minarette.  We were all pretty tired before it got too late and are looking forward to a good nights sleep.  The tour company seems to be well organized, but the Mt. Dew in India doesn't taste nearly as good as in the USA.

Don't say you could live there until you've been there awhile!
