Day One - Delhi
New Delhi Travel Blog› entry 3 of 27 › view all entries
Well, we arrived safe and sound last night. After 30 hours of traveling we were very tired.
The Thikana B&B has proved to be an excellent choice (although I was wondering a bit last night when we arrived -and as we were so tired it all seemed to be a bit overwhelming) After a good nights sleep in very comfortable beds - we felt much better and were raring to go.
This morning we had breakfast with some other guests - they were very interesting to talk to as they had lived in Delhi for a few years and were back to visit some people. We picked their brains for tips about what to see and do.
A little later the owners wife arrived and she was even more helpful. With the help of a map and we set out a plan for the day and for tomorrow.
We have hired him again for tomorrow as we still have things on our list that we want to do
What I have loved today is seeing all the beautiful sari's that the women are wearing. The colours are magnificent.
Of course one of the places we went to today was FabIndia - the place to buy Indian clothes - Ann and I both did well - augmenting the sari outfit (s) that we had brought with us.
Tonight we are going out to dinner at a restaurant that is apparently and institution here - the food they say is spectacular.
Will sign off now and hopefully will be able to add another entry soon.
