Today I went over to the Indian government shopping bazaar. It is a collaboration of Indian textiles, jewelry, furniture, etc. and is about three to four stories. It is located across the street from our hotel. I found some neat things while I was there.
Quite honestly, today was the first day that I ventured out of hotel compound area. I really didn't think I was up for more of what we saw on the way to Delhi. I kind of had to weave on and off the sidewalk, past street vendors to get to the end of the block to cross the street. Surprisingly, very few people tried to get my attention to hire a cab, give them money, or buy something like they were in Agra.
Tomorrow we leave for Nepal. I am really excited about this little excursion. I don't have any expectations for what Nepal will be like other than cold. I know we will be traveling very carefully as there is a travel warning for Nepal due to kidnappings and extortion. Let's hope the kidnappers and extortioners pass us over!
