New Friends


Last night spent a little time in a couple of areas I hadn’t been to in Delhi before: Okhla and New Friends Colony….which was appropriate, because I was with new friends. My friends referred to Okhla as “Little Pakistan”. It was fascinating and crowded like crazy. I was mesmerized by this guy making round bread in a spherical oven, but too self-conscious to take a pic.

Taking the overnight train to Pathankot tonight. Then I will switch to the (supposedly lovely) narrow-gauge train to Kangra, then on to Dharamsala (Mcleoedganj actually).

I don’t know why I can’t resist the sweets in India (perhaps because they are so damn good!). Below is a pic from a Bengali sweet shop that Meeta took me to the other day.
