Anyway, despite the general pall set over the end of December by the Delhi events, our time in Delhi was wonderful. Temperatures were at achingly record lows (coldest temps in 46 years) and we spent a lot of time huddling under shawls and jackets but Delhi is a fascinating city with an amazing history. Kalani had just been there with his class (he returned to Bangalore 9 days before we landed in Delhi -- poor kid) and turned out to be an excellent resource. When parts of the city were closed he was quick to suggest other sites, both ones he'd enjoyed and ones he wished he'd seen. He even (much to Immo's dismay) brought us to his favorite restaurant on Chowdni Chowk -- the busiest street in Delhi (and, perhaps the world). The restaurant (Haldiran's) was Saturday-afternoon-in-India-packed with a wait for each table but it was fun to see him so excited to share his experiences with us.
