    Delhi: Start Of A Two Week Indian Odyssey

    We arrived in Delhi late Sunday evening after 24 hours in transit PHL-LHR-DEL. The good news is the lovely hotel where we are staying, the beautiful Imperial. However, walking in the neighborhood of the hotel, Connaught Place, came as a shock to my European-attuned sensibilities. The area is teeming with humanity all seemingly with something to sell you. In a couple of days we'll be flying to Kolkata to board a riverboat on the Ganges for a weeks-long voyage. Perhaps that will be a little more relaxed and low key. Finally we'll visit the Golden Triangle area, Jaipur, Agra, the Taj Mahal, etc. During the next two weeks I will try to post to my blog http:hardtoport.blogspot.com, however internet services in India are not what they are stateside or even on the island.

    Have fun! You may find buying a roaming plan and using cellular data is faster than WiFi. Most of the big hotels have good broadband. We loved our recent time in Agra back in January.
