Delhi - Order amongst the chaos
Submitted by flock1 on 2008-04-04 17:30:57 (via www.travelblog.org)
5 days in Delhi, with a side trip to Agra to boot. The Shatabdi Express is only 2 hours from Delhi to Agra - the home of the Taj Mahal.

Wow!! reading this has definitely brought back memories!
I went to Delhi in Oct 2005 and it was probably 1 of the best experiences of my life. I would have to agree that traffic is crazy it took some getting used to and no one will ever truely no what it is like until they experience it themselves! we had cars driving into the back of our taxi and our driver not even flinching, we saw motorcyclists driving around with families of 5 perched on the back but as was said the traffic is going quite slow and everyone is used to the traffic being like this, it is a way of life to them! at times we honestly found it all quite amusing including the total disregard for the no horns sign!
I was heartbreaking at times being in delhi as everyday i was faced with poverty,the roads were lined with peoples homes built out of whatever they could find and whenever our bus would stop or even as we were walking along the street people would come and ask us for money or try to sell us stuff.
While i was out there i got a bit of the tourist experience, i went to the taj mahal and it was magical and visited some markets but i also got a slightly different experience to your regular tourist! i was part of a team that was working with a charity called ASHA while i was out their. we spent most of our time in 1 of many slums that ASHA work with, called tigri. We got to spend time with many of the children and visit lots of peoples homes. The ASHA team and the people of tigri were truely amazing and they really looked after us while we were there. I plan to go back there as soon as i possibly can.

Thank you Anna. Glad you enjoyed my write up of Delhi. If you go back to the website you read it on, and scroll down to the bottom, you can watch a 10-minute video of our trip. It's on Youtube, via the link.

Ah this brings back memories!!!! I was in Delhi lasst Jan but only for a few days, so wish it was longer. I loved it there, it was some experience. The traffic is mental and there is a constent beeping of horns, bring some headache tablets... I thought the people were lovely but be sure to be careful. most are very friendly, always want to help but a lot are actually just looking for a quick few quid! It is very say there as you can see proverty all around you, its so sad. It is extremely hectic city aswel, everyone is on the go. Taj Mahal is defo worth a visit, its some experience, it really is a wonder. Defo recommend a trip to India, people are lovely and the place is beautiful. hopefully I'll make it back again sometime in the near future
