We began our shopping excursion after breakfast - that is, breakfast on steroids; lunch is even more elaborate. The food is already exhausting us!
Five of the ladies were determined to walk to Khan Market, but were greeted by some very insistent auto rickshaw drivers who insisted that the market is closed today (true, we later confirmed) and for 10 rupees (25 cents) we would be taken to another market. Well, we had been told to pay no more than R20, so 10 looked good. Driver and his friend took us out all over the city (and landing us in favored markets, of course, where I know he got a commission, but that was okay by us).
We were scared at first and then realized we were having the time of our lives, and that this is our only free day in New Delhi, so let's go for everything
The driver gave me his cell phone number and promised to take me to get Ron at the airport (in his car) for a very good price. I will call him.
I was impressed with the service in Cancun, but this is even more intense. A woman in the lobby ladies room actually dried Sarah's hands for her; Bob was joking that the guy in the gym did everything for him but lift his weights. It's tiring figuring it all out, but I think we'll get accustomed to it. :-)
I just spent a half hour getting pictures loaded and realize now that I put them in last night's blog entry. Oh well... I'll learn!
