International Check-In: Welcome to India

My dear readers, I’m here in India but experiencing such technical difficulties that blogging may prove impossible. Excuse the blurry photo of me at Delhi’s Jama Masjid but it’s the best I can do under the circumstances. In the meantime I’ll use the comments on this post to provide brief updates on my progress on this wonderful adventure.

    Enjoy India! I spent 10 months living there from March 2011-January2012 and miss it incredibly. Might be too late now but don’t miss Karim’s (a delicious restaurant) located near the Jama Masjid – ask any local and they’ll point you in the direction. In Delhi don’t miss Huamyun’s tomb (one of my favourite sites), Red Fort, and explore Chandni Chowk – being sure to stop in the Spice Market. For some good souvenir shopping all in one place head to Dilli Haat – lots of vendors with goods representing all regions of India – the line drawings in particular are quite stunning. Oh, and at Dilli Haat try the Kashmiri food stall and if you’re a meat eater try Gushtaba – I miss that every single day. Eeek! So much I’d love to pass on to you but I hope you have an incredible time. Oh, and India Gate at night – it’s quite pretty lit up and just seeing all the locals and couples hanging out on the grass :-) Oh, and there’s some great fabric stores in the Electronic Market…ummmm…Nehru Place! That’s the name. Go there – it looks deceiving because there’s tons of electronic shops but they have some fabulous fabric shops in the back…ask someone to point you in the direction. Whatever you decide to do – enjoy! Merry Christmas!

    Karen, I haven’t forgotten my pledge to have my photo taken at the Peacock gate in Jaipur. Have just had an incredible day in Mandawa; was on the top floor of a havelli overlooking this would-be ghost town when the call to prayer rang out at 4 pm, it was a wonderful moment. Sitting here typing before dinner and after an amazing Ayurvedic massage, the evening call to prayer has just come and gone. We’re REALLY not in Kansas anymore, Toto.
    Kay, thank you very much for the recommendations: yes, we have already moved on from Delhi but I’ll be back for another free afternoon following Agra and the Taj Mahal next week. Cheers!
