Three days in Delhi were fun! The weather? – 100°F (+38°C), 100% humidity… not so much!
However, almost all items on my To-Do-Go List were crossed out. I have memo-photographed Rajpath, Imposing India Gate, Parliament House, Chandni Chowk and Main Markets, Mahatma Gandhi Memorial and National Gandhi Museum, National Zoological Park, National Rail Museum, and other sights, taken a bicycle rickshaw ride around Old Delhi, become a part of some Indian festival, attended Red Fort Light Show (sorry, it’s a waste of time), enjoyed great vegetarian meals and Kingfisher beer… and made a new friend Sumaiya (see my next post).
Delhi, officially National Capital Territory of Delhi (NCT), is the largest metropolis by area and the second-largest city by population in India. It is the eighth largest metropolis in the world by population with 16,753,265 inhabitants (2011). There are nearly 22.2 million residents in the greater urban area.
