Where I stayed
Hotel New King, off Main Bazaar
Delhi is dirty. Getting the the taxi in from the airport was fun. cars driving 5 abreast on a 3 lane motorway, plenty of undertaking and overtaking simultaneously and a good does of car horns. Was never really scared as they dont actually drive too fast but wouldnt fancy taking the wheel myself. A whole lot of work going on for the Commonwealh games (which starts in 10 days) but not much of it looking like being finished. Then we arrived at our hotel. First we turned off the main road on to a muddy side street lined with dodgy looking shops. The driver pulls up and points at an even muddier and narrower lane and says "hotel up there". Jumped out, tiptoed like big girls through the mud and walked up the lane, past an open urinal, round a bend to be greeted by a bunch of slumdog kids and there was our hotel shining in front of us
Hopefully the pictures tell you the rest of the story of our time in Delhi.....
