Greetings all the way from India New Delhi!
We took off from Heathrow airport on Thursday 12th February at around 12pm and arrived in New Delhi at 2am. We were greeted at the airport by Bittu, a driver from the Good Samaritans School and taken to our hotel. A few hours of sleep and we were raring to go for our first day.
First on today’s schedule was a visit to Humamayun’s tomb, followed by a visit to the Red Fort. Here we listened to an audio tour telling us all about the history of the Fort and learnt a great deal about Shah Jahan, the man who commissioned it in 1638.
We then braved the Delhi traffic on our way back to the hotel where we sampled some authentic Indian cuisine. Tomorrow we are getting up at 4am to set off on an adventure to Agra, where we will get to see the Taj Mahal, one of the 7 Wonders of the World.
