The Writing on the Wall

Pat’s bought a new rug

We had lunch on a revolving restaurant, panoramic views of Delhi whilst the sun set, very impressive (perhaps picutres later, when I can find a computer with USB connection)We met a terribly nive elderly Indian gentleman suspiciously near the ATM machine, perhaps he wanted to try and rob us. We ran away just in case….More blogging later blog readers…P.S. Post some comments, so I feel like I’m not talking to […]
