Last day in Delhi

An almost perfect day spent in Delhi today. I visited the India Gate, Qutub Minar, Humayun's Tomb and the Jama Masjid. Just about all the sights that I wanted to see. The only one I'm sorry I missed is the Lal Qila (The Red Fort), which I might check out when I return to Delhi.

I booked a taxi driver until Nov. 28 and if everything works out as they promised it will be hassle free traveling up to Udaipur. I'm not sure that it's the best way to "experience" India or that I got a very good deal, but it sure is great for photos. This allows me to pull over and take photos at any point along the way, unlike with a train.

My Taxi driver's name is Bhuwan, a fellow from Nepal. We talked a lot about mountains and hiking. I guess I'll be getting to know him quite well for the next several days. Tomorrow morning we're off to Agra.

Nice photos from Delhi, Marko! I wish I had the patience at the start or time at the end to check out some sights there.
So you decided for the taxi instead of a train... It is better for photos - and time. I guess you got a good deal on that as it's usually quite expensive.
It seems like you got your way around very quickly. Have fun in Agra. Look forward to your photos from Taj!

Nice photos!
...and you even managed some without lots of people, which is probably as hard in Delhi as it is in Beijing :)

Don't worry about missing the Red Fort. It's nothing compared to the other forts around Raj...
