Brief Delhi Stopover

Unsure of where we wanted to go next, we went to the bus station and hopped on a bus to Delhi. We were given the option of a new AC bus or a non AC local bus. Guess which bus we chose? Of course the local one! Here are some pictures of the luxurious standard of bus we travel on here in India. I have also included some pics of the AC bus we could have chosen. We saved approx $6 with our choice!

In Delhi we stayed in the backpackers area where there are markets and lots of restaurants. I have been to Delhi before and find it to be a pretty uninspiring place and we only stayed two days. While we were there we visited the Ganghi Museum which was interesting and offered an insight into his philosophies and influence. He had some great ideas and was good for India but I did find a few of his ideas a little unrealistic and black and white. I think he was a great man and deserves recognition for the amazing things he achieved and the way in which he inspired people all around the world.

We also visited the markets at night and the main shopping area that is called Connaught Place. It is an area that was developed by the British and this influence is evident in the style of the buildings. The shopping was good, a mix of Western shops and Indian ones.

Continuing our journey North, we caught another bus, this one 8 hours long headed for Haridwar.
