Cheking-in From New Delhi....

I'll have to wait to tell the story of our first day of vacation....the cancelled flight, the mad dash to catch a plane...missing it...and then booking another last-minute flight on another airline.  The travel-agency staff was adaptable and fully on top of the day ended up just perfect!  Delhi/New Delhi - and the hotel we are staying at - The Hotel Shangri-La Eros - simply incredible.  The is truly a world-class capital city...a cool blend of new and old.  No doubt that the British were here...the presidential palace, the parliament building, the government buildings...all built-to-last by the Brits.  We'll have some pics up on Facebook when we get back....unless I figure out how to upload them from Amy Suzanne's computer.  Upper-left is a photo thefamous wonder trhat we toured called  Humayun's Tomb.  In the meantime....more sightseeing in Old Delhi today...the afternoon is free to do what we want...then off to Jaipur, Rajasthan, by car, tomorrow!!


  1. Hi!
    I've been following your blog for a few months now.I am originally from Hyderabad and had come to the US in 2007for pursuing my Masters at LSU.It is very interesting to have an expats perspective on my hometown.Keep blogging!

    Also,with regards to getting adjusted a new place,I think patience helps.I used to hate the cuisine in the US when I first came here due to the lack of 'masala' in it,but I got used to new taste and I just love the wide range of cuisine available here in Baton Rouge.I bet you're missing cajun steak and cheeseburger in Hyd. :)


  2. Thanks for the comments. I love Baton Rouge...I have friends who have a daughter going to LSU!!
