Some sights in Delhi

13 Sep

Let’s face it, Delhi is a shithole.  However it has been interesting to see for the couple of days we have been here.  I’m ready to go now.

That being said, I took some quick video footage with our digital camera on an autorickshaw ride to the Red Fort this morning- check it out.

Here is a picture of the Red Fort, a 15th century Mughal fort in the middle of Old Delhi.  It is made of red sandstone like many of the forts in this area.  Surprisingly, the fort was a little bit of calm in the chaos that is Delhi- it was exactly what we needed.

We leave for Agra tomorrow.  I’ll post more when we get there.

    We look forward eagerly to Astrid and Anthony’s exploits and adventures. We are reading this today from the Outer Banks, Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, as we sit next to America’s tallest lighthouse, set on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. But our views pale in comparison to the excitement generated by this fantastic blog! Great stuff!
