Highlights: Exploring local area.
This time for my flight from Hong Kong to Delhi I had a seat mate, a big Indian fellow, meaning I had limited access to the aisle. The flight was fine enough, or fine enough for someone who has been awake for over 18 hours when it began. They sprayed all passengers on approach to Delhi, that was something new.
My bag showed up at the airport, being 12.40 am in the morning local time I was happy for no problems. The transport pickup went fine. G Adventure has a program to use local women who need income in a society where it can be very difficult to be a women.
The hotel is fine. Just not as centrally located as I hoped. During the night the power keep going off in the local area. I ensured I got up in time for the included breakfast.
For the rest of the time I mostly relaxed. I also went for a short walk in the local area but the extreme heat made this difficult so it should be interesting when the trip starts for real on Monday morning with a walking tour of Delhi.
The hotel had limited internet access so I also got to listen to the last quarter of the Essendon v Carlton match which we won.
