i am back in Delhi after a quick trip to Nepal to visit friends in the town that i was a Peace Corps Volunteer. it was nice to see that everyone was doing fine despite the political difficulties.
i met Jack at the train station early on the morning of the 18th. it was easy to recognise him since he was the only western face there!
we spent the morning visiting the Red Fort in Old Delhi. an impressive complex built in the mid 1600s by the Mughal King, Shah Jahan, the same King who built the Taj Mahal.
Jack wanted to do some gift shopping, so we braved the crowded, hot streets of Old Delhi and found everything that he needed.
a siesta was in order after all our shopping was done, so a cool airconditioned room was a welcome haven! yea Hotel Prince Polonia!
Jack's flight was later in the evening and after a whirlwind week in India, he was on his way home to familiar sights, sounds and foods!
i will head for the cooler hills again tonight and spend a few days in Rishikesh, the place made famous by the Beatles in the 70s. then i will be back in Delhi in time for Chemo #4 and join forces again with Margi and Jennifer.
so, until then.....
