In Delhi (03/01/10 pm)
Got fogged off and missed our connection. Now stuck in Delhi. The airport was chaos. It took us over 2 hours before we got a new ticket, and then a hotel transfer. The hotel is, well, a genuine cultural experience. Hot water --- at least if you turn the boiler on first. The room not too clean with a strange smell. And no heating, which is unfortunate in the middle of winter.
Food was good though --- we all went veggie --- everyone else to be on the safe side. Took me a while to convince them that the chick peas would make up for the lack of protein. I didn't point out the mouse running free by then, as it wouldn't have helped. Explains the strange smell.
I'm hoping that my DEET is effective against insects other than mosquitos.
