"Delhi" Delhi by Skibbe

Hello Delhi!

Delhi is a huge, crowded city of about 14 million and many of them are homeless. The city itself is not particularly attractive but it has some great sites and blends old and new India. From my first wild taxi ride from the airport to the hotel, I knew that Delhi had its own flavor.

Sarah McDonald's book "Holy Cow" is a fun book to read before coming here. She is an Australian journalist who lived in Delhi for two years, also traveling through much of India. Its funny but she also develops a deep love for the country during her stay.

Pros and Cons
