Today we went to the Old Delhi area. We took a bicycle rickshaw and rode by the Jama Masjid (Friday Mosque) just as prayer was letting out - a zillion Muslim men all around us, it was wild. Also a zillion armed Indian policemen (remember this is a predominantly Hindu country). We also rode through the Chandni Chowk marketplace - little winding streets and alleys with stall after stall of merchandise. Beautiful and crowded and vibrant and nutty. This was the first time I really got a sense of a city with 22 million people. I have a new appreciation for our nice little neighborhood, yay Green Park.
We also took the metro - it was immaculately clean and orderly. We sat in the "women's car" - very civilized.
And I bought some gifts for people. I am a terrible bargainer.
