First day in Delhi

Amanda, Jon and I arrived in New Delhi this morning and we are staying at the Samrat Hotel, adjoining the IMPC hotel, the Ashok.

After settling in we had a brief look at the city, the second most populous metropolis in India, with around 17 million inhabitants, and well known for its wide tree-lined boulevards.

India Gate is the National Monument of India. Built in 1931 it commemorates the 90,000 soldiers of the Indian Army who lost their lives fighting for the British Raj in the Great War.

Tomorrow is registration day, and we will be setting up our booth ready for the official opening on Monday.

  1. It is only three days since we took this city tour and saw the sights of the tourist brochures, the beautiful Delhi mentioned in yesterday morning's welcome session. Last night Amanda, Jon and I took a taxi into the centre of Delhi, and saw sights that we found deeply disturbing, far from beautiful, and which should have no place in a society which spends billions of dollars in its quest to send men into space.
