Series Two: Do & Dee & Delhi
“HOTEL RAK”, that sign you see at the background was our second hotel. This hotel is probably one of the best ones at Main Bazaar because it had knobs on its airconditioner.
Yes, knobs to control the fan speed and the temperature. The first hotel didn’t have any so I had to cover the airconditioner with pillows and blankets to control the temperature. Garandee’s teeth were chattering so hard I was worried I’ll need to thaw her out the following morning.
Garandee and her huge backpack. I worry that if she fell backwards she can never get back up... you know, like a beetle or a turtle.
One of the best things about walking around Delhi was the opportunity to take photographs of people as they go about their business. Here are a few of my favorite ones…
You just gotta love the fabulous Sari’s the ladies wear in India. They're sooo colorful! Garandee even had a couple of Sari’s when she was working as a part time waitress in an Indian restaurant in Tokyo.
One of my biggest regrets was not having enough time to visit the Hindu temples around Delhi…
Rickshaws! You will not believe how many of these I dodged while I was walking around Delhi, it was absolute “Rickshaw Rampage”!
I remember riding one on our first day…
Garandee: “Do, are you ok? You’ve been hitting the roof of the rickshaw a lot.”
Garando: “Yeah, as long as I use my hands like a helmet, I’ll probably survive. OW!!”
Garandee: “Kawawa… try to duck lower.”
Garando: “If I did that my face will hit the handle bars. YOUCH!”
Garandee: “Oh, right… how about… DO!! LOOK!!”
Garando: “Huh?? What? Where? ARAYKUPO!! (Ouch!!)”
Garandee: “There’s McDonald’s here!”
Garando: “Big deal, there’s McDonald’s everywhere. UFFF!”
Garandee: “But how can you have a burger restaurant in a country where cows are sacred??”
Garando: “Hmmm good point.“
Garandee: “di ba? (isn’t it?)”
Garando: “Driver, can you drop us off at McDonalds? I wanna get me some Big McGuru and Masala Fries!”
Next stop: Delhi Belly!
This is me inside the rickshaw.
