We just came back from another amazing time in India!! We arrived March 5th at 3:30am and we were picked up at the airport from our wonderful driver Rakesh. We used Rakesh the same time last year. We walked out of the airport and was greeted with a huge smile.
On our way to the hotel we stopped for chai at a road side chai walla. Welcome back to India!!
Rakesh picked us up the next day and we went for a rickshaw through old Delhi and then spent the rest of the day visiting the usual monuments forts and temples.
Next day off to the Taj Mahal with Rakesh. My husband and I saw the Taj last year but this time we brought the kids. Fabulous day. We stopped at roadside restaurants for Chai and lunch and while we were busy Rakesh stopped and bought us fresh fruit.
Next day we went to get henna at a local market and spent a few hours walking through. Then off to Old Delhi to spend the rest of the day. One of my favorite places is Old Delhi. You could spend hours there watching the busy traffic, eating amazing food, winding through the busy streets and looking through all the shops.
Last morning Rakesh picked us up and took us to the train station. He organized and bought our train tickets in advance. I was worried about getting on the right car and being on the right platform so Rakesh came in with us and made sure we got on the right train!
We loved every minute of Delhi!!!
If anyone has any questions about our trip please ask. And if anyone needs a driver please pm me and I will give Rakeshes contact information. I promise you will be impressed with his services.
