i’m quite certain we’ll never be able to accurately describe day one in delhi, a city of 22 million.
the contradicting emotions we felt, the things we saw, the food we tasted, the cultural differences we observed and endured, the people we met and new things we learned.
today was unlike any other day in my life. d’s life. that, i know for a fact.
we’re exhilerated and exhausted, but excited for more.
sporting another loaner robe (floral, which i much preferred) at the only mosque in india that allows women to enter
colorful crumbling buildings as far as you can see through the pollution filled sky.
danny with dilil (said: dee-leep), our wonderful indian guide turned friend.
the sights, sounds & smells of the sunday market are a true sensory overload.
it’s everything from snake charmers and incense sellers to people bathing and buying wedding dresses.
sidewalk barbershops & shaves going on everywhere
it’s estimated there are 1 million tuk tuks in the city of delhi alone.
flowers for hindu offerings

the red fort in old delhi.
these pups picked gandhi park to live at. not a bad choice.
