After breakfast at the hotel, we hopped on the Delhi Metro and rode the two short stops to Connaught Place, the center of the city of Delhi. We did some sightseeing and visited several shops.
The temperature was on the rise and Diane was close to heat exhaustion, leading to her getting sick.
We took a auto rickshaw (Tuk Tuk) to the main office of the State Bank of India so that I could exchange some travelers checks into Indian Rupees. We had completed all of the paper work for the transaction and the bank teller was just about to hand over the money when her computer crashed. She told us the system could be down anywhere from ten to forty five minutes. Since I had already signed my travelers checks, we just sat and waited for nearly 40 minutes. Just as we were about to give up, the computer started working again and we were able to complete the transaction.
