Got back to Delhi late and somehow found a bar that had a DJ and sells Alcohol. It was bizarre but name me something that I would find normal in India, that’s the reason so many people want to visit. Few drinks before tomorrows tour of the city
First visit was an overturned Rickshaw that had crashed into a motorbike. I know India doesn’t have the claim culture most western countries have but regardless I had to give the motorcyclist credit. I know it doesn’t take much to flip a rickshaw but when I motorcycle is involved you’d think it would come off worse. You wouldn’t have thought the motorcyclist was involved in an accident as he just sat on the ground shaking his head.
DID YOU KNOW….?
- Delhi and New Delhi are two different places
- New Delhi is the capital whilst Delhi is the city within
- The red fort used to be white
DID YOU KNOW….?
- Delhi was once surrounded by 14 gates
- Delhi is the second most populated city in the world
- The worlds tallest minaret is in Delhi
The people of India are truly something else, very polite, very curious and always keen to get a photo with an ugly westerner! But in all seriousness I could fault the people (apart from one) which really turned my good experience into a great one and it is for sure one of the reasons i am keen to return!
During my time in India, everything was affordable. From over night trains to an 8 hour car journey, it is very possible to travel India on a budget. Like most however I was a little cautious of the food but it posed no problems as long as you make sure where you eat and to use nothing else but bottled water. Please don’t make this put you off the fact that an amazing experience can be had in India!
Well, what can I say about India, there aren’t many places in the world as unique and jaw dropping in every way. Its a country that will open up anyone’s eyes to new experiences and way of life. Surely it has to be on the bucket list for any traveller! For my India Reflection post click here.
