... a circular group of buildings that are shoulder to shoulder shops and market stalls (about 1 km diameter and obviously constructed by the British). We are not shopping so we are referencing the maps and trusty 'Lonely Planet' and in general looked like two prize tourists ready for the picking. We are accordingly hassled by every Tout and con man in Delhi. Again this is both tedious and tiring. At first you do not want to be rude and then as they persist all you want to be to them ...

The other thing that caught my eye was the almost universal message "No Tipping" - we saw this at the tourist sites and even in the hotels - where individual tipping wasn't encouraged. This is a sea change from the India of before, where even taking a photo meant paying for it - we hardly ever had to deal with this sort of thing this time.
I don't know if all these wonderfully progressive changes are ...
