Delhi Rush


After eight hours at Heathrow Jim and I boarded a packed flight to Delhi where we arrived in the morning mist at 9:30 this morning. The airport was a spacious pleasant surprise and we sailed through passport control and baggage in 30 minutes…. hallelujah!

We were met by a tour guide Jim connected us with and off we dived into a wild ride round this bustling city where cars and every other kind of vehicle compete for space. Went to see some historic buildings from British era, had a wonderful pedal rickshaw ride through corridor streets of Old Delhi. Electric wires dangle like cobwebs above and every commodity you could wish for is on sale. Visited a major Seiko temple where they feed 10,000 people a day – all volunteers. The meals are open to all as a sign of equality and the bustle must have been similar to what Jesus might have experienced in Jerusalem….. A few more sights and then at last back to hotel for shower and early night. Head out at 5am for Mumbai and then to meet Raj and family ……
