Day 1: 24 May, 2009

Day started off early. We had a train to catch at 7AM from Secunderabad Station. We were traveling to Delhi by the AP Express. We were booked in the Sleeper Class (big mistake!!).

Originally the ticket was in RAC, so once it got confirmed, we were allotted the side berths including a side middle. Horrible berth!!

The temperature during the afternoon soared and the train was a burning furnace. Couldn't even sleep in peace. It was a little better, once the sun set and the night was upon us.

The journey was nothing special. Didn't click any pics on the train and spent most of the day trying to sleep and talking.
The journey was pretty boring.

to be contd.

Mod Note: I have added a bit to your title maranellored, to distinguish this thread from your other discussion thread.

Talking Day 2

We reached Delhi at about 9 in the morning, and our first stop was Wimpy's near Palika bazar. Nothing like a burger, fries and coke to get you back into luxury mode after a hot and sweaty train journey. We then roamed around a lot in the metro rail. Delhi has a really good metro rail system. You just buy this coin, zap it, get in the train, get out at your station, announced by a cool female voice, which also tells the gentlemen to please not sit on seats reserved for the ladies, and then the coin gets swallowed by another zap-thing. We finally ended up at Chandni Chowk, intending to visit the Red Fort. Sadly, the Fort was closed for the monday; but the whole of Chandni Chowk was waiting to be discovered! As we walked down the narrow lanes, I could almost hear the song "delhi 6" among the numerous footsteps of the shoppers, grocers, housewives, professionals, and the rickshaw-wallahs, autos, scooters and 'Chandni Chowk Seva' buses and the occasional car crowding the roads. The beat just seemed to flow....it's just awesome being a tourist!
The food was great: dahi bhalla like ive never seen before, vrindavan lassi ( and i keep as far away from dairy as i can ), fruit chaat (yummy pieces of fruit and roasted potato chunks immersed in the best combo of chatpata masala.. mmmmm... dinner seems far away now...) and pani puri, or gol guppa to wash it down. Soon our tummies were as full as our bags, and it was time to head to ISBT to catch our bus to Aut. Health Tip: avoid the washrooms at ISBT. In fact, avoid ISBT itself. Mess if there ever was a building-full.

So very sorry for the late updates. I don't have photos yet. I'll post them as soon as i get them.
