Delhi, India – 3.18.2012

We arrived in India late on Saturday night after a long but mostly uneventful travel day, although the screaming child on the Newark to New Delhi flight was nearly record-breaking.  Who knew a child could actually scream for 13+ hours straight?!?  I certainly remained contentedly naive to this fact until yesterday.  Live and learn as they say.  After a sound night of sleep, we spent today touring Delhi and seeing the sights.  It is a beautiful, humble, receptive, inviting, delicious, warm, fragrant, humid, friendly, crowded place.  So far, it meets or even exceeds expectations.  Tomorrow we are off to Agra to see the Taj Mahal, which was built by Shah Jahan as a memorial to his 3rd wife who died giving birth to her 14th child.  So, this mausoleum from the mid-1600s was certainly well-deserved.  More pictures from our day in Delhi available by clicking the picture above.  Namaste.
