Well we have made our way back to India and to Delhi.  My parents arrived at 2:00am on January 8th to begin there adventure though India with us.  After few hours sleep after picking my parents up at the airport we started our family adventure with the National Museum in New Delhi.  New Delhi is a great part of the city very nice and not very crazy the museum was very nice.  After that it was off to Humayan's Tomb or what should of been Humayan's Tomb but our Auto driver had a different plan for us.  We ended up at Safdarjang's Tomb instead (can't trust an Auto Driver) which turned out to be very nice.  The first day in India for my parents was very nice and except for being taken to the wrong Tomb and having a yelling match with the Auto driver on the return journey it went very smooth.

On the second day in Delhi it was off to the old part of the Delhi.  We started at Jama Masjid Mosque the largest mosque in India where we took some great pictures and started our bird watching as well.  If you don't know my mom she is an avid bird watcher and she spotted 4 new birds that she has never seen before at the mosque in downtown Delhi.  From the mosque we walked to the Red Fort and visit this 17th century Fort.  Built by the Mughal empire in was an impressively fortified Fort with high walls and great views from the interior.  In all our time in Delhi and the introduction to India was very exciting.
