Day 2 : What one does with 30 spare minutes in Delhi


View India 18 - 19 on bruceontour's travel map.

Having breakfast and from the restaurant window Delhi turned on one of its usual winter’s foggy morning. With the travel and time zone changes, I was wide awake early so decided after breakfast to use the 30 minutes that I had before my 9am / 09:00 pick up and walk the local streets towards Connaught Place.

Hotel staff said “Turn left” which I did … but they didn’t say that as the hotel was on the corner, it is at the lights turn left. Never mind, enjoyed the walk along Maharaja Ranjit Singh Marg over the railway tracks passing the park where Muslim ladies all covered up head to toe were exercising towards the intersection with Mirdard Marg where 15 minutes later it was time to turn around.

Standing at the intersection watching the traffic and people go by, the memories of my previous trip a year ago to India quickly flooded back … mainly the street vendors, bicycles, tricycles, tuks tuks and of course the noise of the horns. Hate to think what it would be like later as it was still early for India.
