Today we were heading back to Delhi as tomorrow we are visiting the city and at 7pm we are catching a train to Varanasi. From the resort to the city there are only 300km but it takes more than 6 hours due to the road conditions. Besides, you have to go across some small villages, which are very busy. In October Delhi is hosting the Commonwealth Games, so all roads are under construction, although they still don’t know if everything will be ready on time.
We stopped for lunch in the middle of the way. Jagdish and Bhupi went to a cafeteria with local food and Silvia and I went to a McDonalds.
There is a fact that is really impressive in India. Public infrastructure is very poor but they have a very good telecommunications network. You see people living in very poor conditions but they have a cell phone! You even see people with laptops connecting to the Internet and using Facebook!
We arrived to Delhi around 6pm, enough time to rest a little bit and head to Connaught Place in a tuc-tuc . Everything was on sale, so we ended up buying tons of clothes! But best of all, we went for dinner to QBA, the best restaurant we have been to in India! On the way back we got a taxi, they are black with a white/yellow roof.
