we then said a heart felt goodbye to malik, who told me (danny) he loves me allot, and then we were back in the throbbing Paharganj area of new delhi,a little wiser, and a little tougher, and most definitly a little dirtier. back to the namaskar hotel again, beofore out for a few quick beers and whiskey, to say farewell to mark(8% kingfisher beer can really give you a kick up the arse)
so alone in Delhi today, we started plotting our next adventures. first to the train station to book tickets to amritzar, a relativily simple task you would have thought. wrong! on the way, a very friendly guy tells us the way to the tourist office, smelt fishey, especially when somene else ( a friend), said the same thing, and every time we stopped he tryed to push us on, 'only the indians go into the station, foreign nationals round this way'. we held firm and decided to go into the station, darting away from the man following us, when he wasn't looking. inside the station we found the real buerou, and finding out from an italian, that they had wanted 10 timed the price at the other place, always on the make, we felt proud that we had held our ground. we then took our first Rickshaw, 2 weeks and no rickshaw, we must say in our defence that malik would refuse to let us take one, caus he said it was a waste of money, but poor form all the same. anyway haggled allot, thought they were gonna start hitting each other, we done well,and still payed over the odds, but at least we had control, which is the hardest thing to get sometimes. anyway to the red fort, another huge fort, built right in the centre of old delhi, and a nice relaxing afternoon, baring the pictures that we had to have taken with kids, and the usual staring that theblond one gets. hello sir, hello hello, where are you from, baffling, nice ,fun , frustrating ,india oh india. tommorow another day, and another city.
