Delhi belly

We are still waiting for Delhi belly to hit, well its nearly hit tonight, I think it was the paneer. Paneer is basically squares of cottage cheese, they add curry to it, or in the case tonight it was a chilli sauce. The paneer is strange to eat, its kinda gooey and you cant chew it, but you cant swallow it for fear of choking.A strange food at best, I just looked it up and found it has a huge fat content, and is not recommended for people with diabetes or hypertension!

In Delhi last week I was taken to see the home of the prime minister and where the government sits all day and makes paperwork for the paperwork, it was quiet impressive.

This is the presidents house, or was it the prime ministers…who knows, I dont understand how a country can have a prime minister and a president…. I know I know, there is a reason why there is 2 of them….

May 19 – are we really here?

So once again we got very little sleep, Chris did a bit better than me. Our bodies have no idea what the time is plus you have to get used to the bed as it is the usual Asian one and the mattress is only an inch thick, but it was nice to actually lie down.


The shower was exciting this morning, no hot water, so that helped wake us up.


The gentleman who looks after the guest house got us tea and asked if we wanted some breakfast, the description wasnt great, vegetables where mentioned, so we declined and had some fruit.

Chris then went off to his new office to do paperwork and organise his interview in Delhi on Friday with the DGCA., and whatever else they needed him to do.
