INDIA | Friday, 17 July 2009 | Views [457] | Comments [4]

staying in tibetian colony ,Majnu Ka Tilla very laid back, yesterday went into bad area of delhi ,first place we went to,got ripped off with sim card but thats india! Caught metro into new delhi-parganj-bad area, then walked to chandi chowk,Crazy! it seemed like all 12 million ppl in delhi were in this one area but great experience. Went to Red fort then came back to Majnu ka tilla by auto rickshaw(blast of a ride,they turn there engine off at the traffic lights they stop at,very few! no lights either) we sat down at a small hole in the wall wouldnt call it cafe but it sells chai,run by an old tibetian lady and husband,we tried to talk tiberian and learnt a few words,tok gee chi means thankyou and tashi delak mens how are you,

Today was much better really easy and we didnt care about the rush,we took it slow and made sure we didnt ger lost but we did and had to back track, we saw the presidential palace-Amazing then jus down the long as rd was India Gate,incredible then we continued walkin for what felt like 20miles to get to Humayuns tomb,built by the same guy who built taj mahal,Beautiful too! We have booked bus(12hrs to Dharamasala 2moro at 5pm arriving early morning sunday relax there for about one week then catch bus back down to Chandigarh see sham-chelsea's old boss! it is so so hot,feels like were sitting in a sauna 24/7 even with fan and A/c,Also might head further north into Kashmir depending on situation,goin for dinner now,momos or something 8 for 30Rs 1 dollar,and we still dont like spending that much
