Back to Delhi

Delhi, India

Arrived in Delhi at about 11pm. The honking is back!! cool to come back when you're much more accustomed to India! It doesn't seem half as hectic or dirty as when we first arrived - only 2 weeks ago!!

Some electrical probs with the original hotel so had to stay at another one. Had one last drink in the Austrians room - and said good-byes to those leaving the following day. it's really sad saying bye when you've just shared some amazing experiences, but I think we'lll definitely catch up with a few of them in the near future.

And here we are! Finally catching up on this blog and chilling out!

Then we went to Qutb Minar which is a big tower thing built about 700 years ago, amazing that it is still in good condition and still standing. It was quite a big trip on the auto-rickshaw and the driver was determined to take us to some overpriced shops on the way back, no matter how many times we said no he still took us there. Looks like all auto-rickshaws take their customers there as there were lots of them outside.

Went out for the last supper with the remaining tour members. Had quite a few Kingfishers to celebrate.

When we first got into Delhi 2 weeks ago we met someone called John who said he was a student. He took us to a travel agent that a friend of his from Australia used as they were good and didn't rip you off. We booked three nights accommadation in Goa there (which we didn't go there for) then after talking to the other group members about what they paid its sound like we got ripped of and it was a scam. Anyhow on the last supper one of the Austrian chicks had befriended someone called John who was a businessman and arranged to meet her (and us) at the restaurant we were at, we joked about how it could be the same John, and it was! He didn't stay long enough for us a quiz him, he made his excuses and left pretty quickly. It was very funny and bizarre in a city of 12 million plus.
