Good morning, Delhi!! The air is different and chill than south of India!

It was a colourful day.. sightseeing a lot, meeting Janice, my travel pal from Taiwan, and seeing Garry, only Indian friend of mine.. I felt I am a so Lucky person that I could see this world by this way~  

I spent IR1,000 to book a cab for my own from my INN.. Fortunately, my cab driver is a very kind person.. He tired his best to show me around as much as he can.. The first spot was Red Fort.. He even bought ticket to accompany by me.. I was confused if it's common the driver entering to spots with me..  

I visited so many marvelous tourist spots in Delhi, include 3 world heritages.. yes, I could see 3 world heritages at one day.. how amazing!! I told the owner of the INN, who booked the cab for me, apart from 3 world heritages, India gate and National Museum.

My original cab request for Delhi~
 Take me to wherever they suggest me to visit in Delhi if the time available.. Turn out, I went to Shri Lakshmi Narain Temple, Red Fort(2nd WH I visited), Jama Masjid, India Gate, Humayun's Mausoleum(3rd WH I visited), Qutb Minar (4th WH I visited) and a donno the name cathedral..

I had no idea that I will visit Shri Lakshmi Narain Temple.. when driver told me "here it is, I am waiting for you here". I was thinking where it is.. the place has never been mentioned during discussion of travel list.. However, it's a good surprise.. the temple was very spiritual atmosphere. Pityingly, taking picture inside is prohibited.. Ahead to next spots,  I refused to get off the cab for India gate and National Museum, as I thought India gate is ok just for picture taking and I would spend more than 2 hour in Museum.

My cab was late till 10AM, I was lounging around street for a coffee and Breakfast~
I should save time to visit more places..

After finsihing all astonishing spots visited about 6PM, I was rush the driver back to the INN for ringing Garry, since he told me that he got sudden trip to Mumbai and must change the dinner plan, also he wanted to talk to me by phone.. meanwhile, my driver was keeping asking " Am I a good driver?"  I was perfunctory to say "yes".. unanticipatedly, I found he took me to a cathedral, cause he saw I enjoyed the temple very much and I am a Christian.. He, specially, took me to the Cathedral and let me we witness a sweet wedding~ how warm!!
