I still cannot believe I have been to India and back again! After four and a half days in the beautiful, maddening, huge, crowded city of Delhi and about 24 hours en route back home, lingering aimlessly and sleeping in Bahrain and London – I was home again. That fast! This really is a small world and my trip to India certainly was a whirlwind. In a blink of an eye I was home again, back in North Carolina and its temperate, beautiful spring weather. In my down time in Delhi I did indulge in the BEST spicy Indian food I’ve ever tasted and enjoyed delightful ice-cold Kingfisher beer when the heat felt like it would rampantly overtake my body.
I will say, beer along with good ole H2O were my friends in Delhi. There’s something about the carbs that made the heat dissipate!
I cannot express how excited I am to go back to India with Water for People in November for a little under two weeks. I will travel by plane, train, boat, and automobile in India and see much more of the country than Delhi affords. November cannot get here fast enough! I am curious to see how the rural half lives.
Don’t get me wrong! I did love Delhi and can’t wait to go back; preferably when it’s not 110 degrees with the sun relentlessly beaming overhead. They say November is the ideal time to visit India. I can’t wait to visit then — when the weather is perfect!
Here are a few street scenes I took in Delhi.
