... most colourful and
architecturally stunning building and of course one you are not
allowed to take photos of. All in all, bearing in mind another 'good'

Rubbish, dirt, dust, rules-what-rules?
Completely manic but amidst all this we had high tea at the Imperial Hotel which gives the Ritz a run for its money (I definitely felt at home). All you can eat for £12, pricey for India but equal to just 4 coffees in London. .
The Red Fort and Jams Masjid (biggest mosque in India) were impressive, as was the Metro: built 10 ...
