Out and About: Delhi, India

As promised earlier this month here is a quick post about my recent work visit to Delhi. I really have no idea how to explain how I felt visiting this city. I can tell you this though.
> I loved my trip.
> 5 days is definitely not long enough to experience everything.
> Especially when four of those days, a third of my time, was spent in an office. Side note: it’s a lovely office, but still an office.

The prettiest office floors I’ve ever seen.
 
> The Red Fort is the only tourist spot that I managed to get to on my trip. After landing early on Sunday morning, checking into the hotel and getting some sleep, my colleagues and I headed straight to the fort on Sunday afternoon. Sunday seems to be the time when most of the locals visit, so we were in good company. The Red Fort is a palace surrounded by red walls and was the residence of the Mughal emperor of India until 1857.

> There are formal gardens surrounding all the buildings, although there’s no water in the water features – I can only imagine that with water the gardens would look even more spectacular.

> I finally had paneer curry and it was amazingly good. I’m talking out of my mind delicious. I think I had some type of paneer every day of my trip. I’ve also been given a recipe for making my own paneer – can’t wait to give this a go. I have a feeling it will go well with Fi’s lentil & bulgar wheat korma.
> Driving in Delhi is full on crazy. Like indescribable crazy. For example, at roundabouts it’s the vehicles coming onto the roundabout that have right of way. Yes that’s right. Coming onto the roundabout! Say what?!
> But that didn’t stop me travelling in tuk tuks/autos whenever possible.

So there you have it, the brief highlights of my whistlestop trip to Delhi. As you’ve probably guessed, sprinkled through this post are photos of my visit. In all honesty I didn’t take enough photos – I don’t know why, but it didn’t happen. Therefore I must go back. It’s the only solution obvs.
