I write this blog to share my experiences about my visit to Delhi. I had went to Delhi once and we started on March 24,2007 by Red Fort Express as my brother need to pay his fees for an admission seat in FMS, Delhi. It took the whole day of March 25 “The day for the exit of Indian team from the World cup 2007 as they lost that match to Srilanka” for the journey and the train was just 4 hours late. We reached the railway station at 11am. My brother had to pay fees only on March 27 so we decided to visit places in Delhi. We approached a tourist agency and rented a cab for 800 bux then we booked a room in The Delhi Regency hotel in Pahar Ganj. Next we ate a north indian style dosa and went to the famous Indira Gandhi Museum which is actually her house and got renovated as museum after her assassination. Later, the India Gate-the landmark of Delhi and Delhi Haat-marketplace in Delhi. I also came across to see the famous AIIMS institute and IITD. In the afternoon we saw Lotus Temple and we left out Qutab Minar as it was far away from our place and finally returned to Connaught circle in the evening at 7pm. We spent sometime on the lawns of Connaught circle and decided to go to Karol Bagh via Delhi Metro Train. We made some shopping in the Karol Bagh and later went to a nice cake shop “Bikanar Wala” and bought some cakes and returned to hotel via autorickshaw. On the next day morning we started to walk and reached Chandni Chowk and had our breakfast at McDonalds and hired a richshaw to reach Red fort. It was not allowed for public to go inside due to some terrorist threat at that time. Then we went to Delhi Zoo and found most of the cages to be empty. And after coming out of the zoo, me and my dad waited infront of Delhi Zoo for an hour and in the meanwhile my brother and mom went to pay the fees at FMS. After they returned we went to the Domestic Airport in Delhi via autorickshaw and returned home at 11pm.
