I had heard a lot about Delhi, its mayhem more than anything else. More often than not, most people I asked about it said they couldn't hack it more than a few days and advised to move on whenever possible. I checked it out myself.
We were immediately hassled for taxi's and took one purely cos we didn't have a clue where we were or how we could get to our accomodation. The taxi trip immediately took a turn as the local police discovered that the taxi vehicle was private and not registered. This stalled our journey somewhat as words were exchanged between the driver and the local authority. It didn't stop him coming back for money however!
Dehli brought the imagery of Mumbai back to me, there were so many similarites mainly the city feel. Delhi had that heavy traffic, the mixture of old and new, rich and poor. I will say that I felt Mumbai was actually busier, and I mean in a sense more energetic and bustling, like it was bursting at the seams. Delhi appeared more commercialised, with western advertisements everywhere. This stands to reason as the British captured it back in 1857. We stayed at "The Cozy Inn" right in the main bazaar, opposite the New Dehli train station. The main bazaar is market madness and walking down here with a backpack on ya is like a red flag to a bull!
