That (x 10) about sums up New Delhi so far...I've only been here for a few hours and I'm completely overwhelmed.
It is ABSOLUTLEY FUCKING RIDICULOUS here. Not too long ago I was saying how Bangkok bombards the senses but compared to Delhi...I can't even put into words how crazy it is here. Maybe arriving on November 12th had something to do with it (waiting for you to come back after clicking on the link). Supposedly:
Diwali combines the festivities of the Western holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year.
Meaning...it's out of control here - and it's only the middle of the afternoon!
Oh, and one thing I forgot to add in yesterday's post was some advice about when you arrive in Delhi "don't trust anyone you meet in the first 3 days". And so far...it's dead on. It took me three different modes of transportation to get from the airport to a place that was not even close to where I requested to be taken to. The office of tourism told me to leave Delhi because I would never be able to find a hotel room. And I'm currently debating whether or not I should trust a person's advice to not go to Nepal because it's unsafe (although unfortunately I don't think I will, but it was based on further independent research).
