We got into our taxi in Delhi at midnight after 19 hours in the air. By 1:30 am the taxi driver still couldn't find our hotel. The centre of Delhi is closed off late each evening to due to violence. Therefore the few roads that were open, put us in a different place than our driver wanted to be. We had the Google map "blue dot" doing it's thing. What we didn't know was that our hotel was put on the map incorrectly by Google. Add to that there were hundreds of people sleeping on the streets amongst the garbage. The streets appeared to be one colour, dust, if thats a colour. We had to book into another hotel after ringing our hotel umpteen times without success and asking about 5 people for directions.
That description goes only half way to describe how I felt. India has been an assault on all my senses. It is a country that has to be experienced, not described.
