Delhi has continued to be the crazy place that Charlie described in the last entry. We have ventured onto main bizarre twice more since the last post and I can confirm it is akin to Oxford Circus on steroids. We have constantly had to navigate our way past fridge magnet sellers, hash peddlers, tye-dye t shirt lovers, candle makers, tailors, Taj Mahal playing card emporiums. We have eaten momo's for the first time, unfortunately witnessed a street dog being beaten by a shop keeper and even seen an old woman sleeping on a temporary landfill sight. Wonderful stuff!
The Kerala Express which took us to Agra was equally 'Indian' - A series of rickety, dirty, royal blue carriages with an array of characters filled our section and kept both Charlie and I entertained all the way to Agra...
...safe to say a three hour journey took six hours!
Agra is quite a special place and the obvious draw is the Taj Mahal which Charlie will update you all on in our next installment :-)
Thanks for all your messages, keep them coming as we like to hear how you are all doing and we want to hear from you all too!
Love to all
Ross and Charlie
