110 Degrees in New Delhi
23/25 April 08 -- Our flight arrived late evening in India followed by a 45-minute chaotic car ride to our New Delhi hotel. Any normal person would have been scared to death being driven down the road with no painted lines six vehicles wide (built for three vehicles wide), horns beeping, cows wandering, people crossing, rickshaws meandering. But growing up riding with my brother Greg, I found the scene comical and almost fictional.
Matt and I had our all-day partner strategy meeting with ITGlobe on Thursday ending with cocktails and conversation with Brig Sabarwal and Col Raju, and dinner at the Officers' Club. Good stuff!
On Friday, it was a stifling 110+ degrees. After our US Embassy visit, we took a quick tour with a guide to a few local landmarks, including the Lotus Temple and Humayun's Tomb. We even saw an elephant in the traffic mix that day (can you spot it below?)!
Next up, red-eye to Singapore to meet up with Adam again...
