Getting to Varanasi from Delhi The hardest part travelling to Varanasi was getting hold of the train tickets where we had spent a couple of hours queueing at the international ticket desk at Delhi station a few days previously.   This is one of the places that I was very excited to see, many people had told […]

Sightseeing Around New Delhi

January 5, 20130 Comments

Sightseeing around New Delhi New Delhi has been our first big city in India (we had visited Chennai, but this was more of a stopover) and it has been a real surprise.  The first is that with the exception of key junctions and parts in the very centre of town, the traffic runs quite smoothly, especially on the […]
